  1. […] As soon as my shift ended, it was time to walk over to one of the conference hotels for the NAGT & GSA Geoscience Education Division Award Luncheon.  At this luncheon, selected faculty are recognized with national awards for innovations and excellence related to the scholarship of and service towards geoscience education.  This luncheon is special for me, as it is the same luncheon where I received the GSA Geoscience Education Division’s Biggs Award for Excellence in Earth Science Teaching in 2009.  Included in the award recognitions at this luncheon is the GeoCUR Undergraduate Research Mentor Award, this year, presented to Dr. Mary Savina from Carleton College.  I co-chair the committee that selects the award winner, and I do an interview with the recipient and record a podcast on their reflections of mentoring undergraduate students (podcast and citation for Dr. Savina is here).

@geosociety It’s that time of year again - GSA! We are here in Phoenix at the annual Geological Society of America conference. Are you here presenting your undergraduate research? Let us know! #undergraduateresearch #GSA2019 #geoscience
Incredible! #Repost @cofcnaturalhistory with @get_repost ・・・ Student volunteers and researchers revealing the past - as recently highlighted by @postandcourier! There is so much to do in order to keep CCNHM running that we rely on a small corps of student volunteers, docents, and junior scientists to maintain CCNHM as a center of natural history at @collegeofcharleston. Visitors are most familiar with our student docents - but may not be as familiar with the behind the scenes activities. Our volunteers are primarily students and retirees, and are responsible for cleaning fossils off, reassembling broken fossils, and producing mounts that keep the fossils safe during long term storage. Geology Junior Suzanne Grantham (top) is currently working on reassembling a fossil dolphin - well, it's actually two dolphins that died near eachother, and their bones became fragmented and the fragments mixed together. (...fun) We have one student researcher at present: Bailey Fallon (bottom), a junior in Biology, who is studying fossil leatherback sea turtles from the Charleston area, and has already had her first research manuscript go through peer review! Next semester Suzanne is considering joining the research team, as is another student, Nathan McCuen - they will be studying South Carolina cetaceans and mosasaurs (respectively).

#Repost @americangeophysicalunion with @get_repost ・・・ To round out women’s History Month, AGU is celebrating the geoscience discoveries and advances made by women. Here’s the second of ten: Inge Lehman discovers Earth’s inner core is solid in 1936, which helps explain how the core generates Earth’s magnetic field. #agu100 #women #womenshistorymonth#womenempowerment #geoscience #science#womeninstem #earth #discovery
