Mrs. Chambers' advanced science students have been researching types of earth scientists. Each student selected a type of scientist to research in depth. Then they located contact information for scientists in the field. With Mrs. Chambers help, the students conducted interviews via email, FaceTime, Skype, or phone. The next phase of the project will entail designing a slideshow to share their research with their peers. This will be done in January.
Interviews included the following: paleontologist, micro-paleontologist, seismologist, mineralogist, volcanologist, pedologist, petrologist, agronomist, sedimentologist, mud logger geologist, structural geologist, and environmental geologist.
The students communicated with scientists in Massachusetts, Colorado, Idaho, and Hawaii just to name a few.
