Student Research and Presentations

Research will involve integrated field and laboratory research focused on questions that consider the hydrology and geology of the Mojave Desert. The research questions will be developed within the framework of several existing research projects by teams of CCSD students and teachers and UNLV undergraduate ambassadors, and guided by UNLV faculty mentors, and local informal geoscience educators. The teams will design their own research projects and collect samples for laboratory study, they will process samples using UNLV analytical facilities, and interpret their field and laboratory data and present their results to the UNLV community at the UNLV Department of Geoscience Annual GeoSymposium as well as at the Las Vegas Science Festival.
