Ambassadors in Action
I engaged 8th grader from the island of Martinique by making a presentation to introduce geosciences as well as geoheritage. These students who are from an area with limited resources where enthusiastic to participate in this discussion. I wanted them to realize that one's background does not define one's future.
Our video leverages the personal and professional experiences of three geoscience graduate students - Nicole Gonzalez, Kristian Chan, and Solveig Schilling- spanning various geoscience subfields, to inspire high school students to pursue a geoscience major and career.
