Voices of Undergraduate Geoscience Research

January 29th, 2010

Two Wooster geologists, Colin Mennett (’10) and Terry Workman (’10), are featured Voices of Undergraduate Geoscience Research on the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR) Geoscience Division website. Colin and Terry were interviewed by a CUR Councilor when they presented their research at the 2009 Annual GSA Meeting in Portland, OR. In the podcasts, Colin and Terry discuss the benefits, difficulties, and strategies of working one-on-one with faculty on a year-long Independent Study. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to do an I.S. at Wooster, here’s your opportunity to hear about a couple of first-hand experiences! Enjoy!

    These interviews are VERY well done. More people should hear such voices, especially prospective students! This is a tribute to the Wooster system of undergraduate science and the creativity of our students.
