CMS teacher eager to share G-camp experience

Photo submitted Kayla Jubert, science teacher at Cedaredge Middle School, spent part of the summer at G-Camp for Teachers. She experienced the extraordinary geology of the Southwest on a three-week field trip.

Learning geology in a classroom and laboratory is key to understanding and teaching Earth systems, but experiencing geology firsthand in the field is a whole different story. Instead of chalkboards on the horizon, wide-open vistas fill your eyes. Instead of typing notes on a keyboard, your hiking boots slide and skid on slick clays, and your hand reaches for a rock ledge that holds millions of years of history in its layers.

There's nothing like experiencing the extraordinary features of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison or Carlsbad Caverns for the first time, and each summer for the last 10 years Texas A&M University's College of Geosciences has given that opportunity to STEM educators from throughout Texas and the United States.
