As part of the GEOPATHS (https://geopaths.org) project, the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) at North Carolina State University will host a series of open house events to provide opportunities for high school to learn about research and careers in the geosciences. They will have opportunities to interact with faculty from MEAS to learn about how geoscience is being applied to answer local, national, and global research questions.
Their first open house - Discovering Earthquakes, Exploring Planets and Finding Lost Graves - is scheduled for 5-7 PM on November 9th in Jordan Hall on the NCSU campus. This are intended to be small group, hands-on type events where students will get a chance to do something, rather than sit and listen to people talk. Details of this and later events can be found here. Any science-friendly students who might be interested should apply!
The open house events are just one component in GEOPATHS programming. Each year we will also support Exploring the Earth Summer Camp, a geojourney field trip, and summer workshops for educators (support provided). More details of these programs will follow on the website in the next few months.
