Symposium and Research Requirements

  • Now begins a series of due dates to help propel your research and keep you on track as we prepare for the First-Year Symposium

Assignment: Research Update 1 - Due 18 Sep @ 8pm
Discover what interests you in the fields of geology and/or environmental science. Focus on two distinct topics that you might be interested in exploring more for your Symposium project. For each topic, identify 3 articles that show clear relevance to the topic and accessible information (so, 6 articles in total). I suggest utilizing Science or Nature magazines for your search, though you are not limited to these sources. Key Logistics: Download PDF versions of the articles and submit to your personal Seminar OneDrive folder by Sep 18 @ 8pm.
