The Exploring the Earth Camp could be for you! NC State is offering a FREE weeklong summer day camp to for rising Juniors and Seniors to learn geoscience field and laboratory research techniques.
Geoscientists investigate the Earth, its rocks, oceans and atmosphere. We forecast the weather, develop land-use plans, explore other planets and the solar system, determine environmental impacts, find new sources of useful Earth materials… and that’s just scratching the surface!
Students will participate in hands-on activities exploring topics such as dinosaur eating habits, environmental remediation, 3D modeling, hurricanes, beach erosion, and water quality analysis. We will work with NC State faculty and graduate students, collect our own samples, and take local field trips, including a visit to the Museum of Natural Sciences’ Nature Research Center.
