Earth and Atmospheric Sciences was a hosting station for the IU Day Scavenger Hunt right here in our lobby. We served 50-60 students who stopped by to play the game, get swag and/or stamps, and learn about the diverse research in our department.
Outside on the lawn, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences faculty and students were on hand to greet everyone who came to inquire about our course offerings, get some Earth-themed swag, and watch or participate in the 2nd competitive bean bag toss competition. Doug Edmonds, Brian Yanites, and students demonstrated a stream table and a couple of drones used in the study of geomorphology and sedimentary systems. Ed Herrmann demonstrated flint-knapping to make stone tools. And personnel from the Indiana Geological Water Survey showed off some impressive fossils to interested participants.
Earth and Atmospheric Sciences was also an IU Day Scavenger Hunt station.
