GeoFORCE Alaska students from Alaska's North Slope traveled to the Southwest US to study geology in July 2013. GeoFORCE Director and Dept. of Geology and Geophysics co-chair Dr. Sarah Fowell also served as instructor on the trip, leading hands-on activities in Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon, among other spectacular locations.

The Department of Geology and Geophysics hosts a field camp for its undergraduate students every other summer in the wilds of Alaska. The field camp gives students the opportunity to develop field mapping skills in regions with gold-bearing plutonic rocks, metamorphic rocks, clastic and carbonate sedimentary rocks, and complex structural relations.

The middle school students in this picture attended the Alaska Summer Research Academy last summer. This year's middle school program will be June 2-13. There is also a high school residential program from July 14-25. Students choose one module to study in the areas of science, technology, engineering or math. These students were in a module called "Dirt made my lunch." To learn more about ASRA, go to http://www.uaf.edu/asra/
