Students enrolled in EES 110 through the UK NextGen Dual Credit program came for a visit and were able to talk with graduate students and one recent EES grad about research and career options in the earth and environmental sciences. Photos by Summer Brown.
Every year, EES graduate students plan and run a student research symposium (ReSEES). The 2022 ReSEES was held at the W.T. Young Library and featured an invited talk from Kallie Moore, Collections Manager at the University of Montana Paleontology Center. Photos by Summer Brown.
In EES 230, students travel to Virginia and North Carolina to see igneous and metamorphic rocks "in the wild". Students get a chance to learn about over a billion years of Appalachian geology while establishing close bonds with their classmates. Photos by Summer Brown.
