BSU Geology Summer Field Course - Please Join Us!
Paleo-types, Rock-types, Students, Grad Credits Needed Types, Persons
Who Just want to get away for awhile and learn something about
geology & paleontology,
Get some real in the field experience and get college credit for it
here! Ball State University (where I happen to teach) offers a
geology summer field camp. Rumor has it that yours truly will be
along as faculty yet once again.
The semi-tentative description of said course can be found at:
Despite what it says, you can still enroll. Right now, I think there
are 13 people enrolled. More would be nice, and I think we will halt
it at about 20.
Want to spend 5 days where my barbecued dinosaur bones came from?
Want to go to Dinosaur National Monument and learn to measure a
stratigraphic section with a Total Station? Want to perhaps meet the
*real* Brent Breithaupt of SVP Benefit Auction Fame? Want to go to
Red Gulch, WY and actually calculate the speed of the dinosaurs that
left the dinosaur trackway?
Want to meet Dr. Demento in field-persona? (do you dare?) Want to
meet Glenn Storrs from the CNHM? Want to bump in to goodness KNOWS
how many (in)famous characters that may be in my path along the way?
Want to get 6 graded geology course credits for it? Graduate credit
IS available for this course!
Email either me directly through here and ask me for the information
OR email Sam thourgh the BSU field camp website but do it SOON!
Regardless of that March 15th cut-off date, we have been known to
accept people as we were pulling away from the curb. So, there is
still time. We are going anyway - OI am blatantly attempting to
ensure that I will be going too - because regardless of whether or
not I am teaching I will be in WY this summer doing field work on
barbecued dinosaur chronostratigraphic layers.
I had a blast last year. I've gotten the "Bio-Hazrd" sticker off of
my tent the undergraduates put there so that they could just point
whenthe authorities came and asked who was in charge..... ;^)
Have a great weekend!
