Robert Eves, dean of the College of Science and Engineering at SUU, said the university has helped train teachers in presenting what can be highly technical content to middle and high school students. The university has also developed activities for students, such as science fairs and Lego robotics. "Our efforts here are directed at having confident teachers step into a STEM classroom and be able to inspire those students to be interested enough in STEM to pursue it into higher education," Eves said. "Once we get them into higher education, I think we can do a reasonably good job at getting them out of the other end of the pipeline."view more

Abundant pre-dinosaurian tetrapod tracks, ichnofossil Chirotherium, have been found in the Moenkopi Formation. Swimming reptile tracks are found in the Torrey Member of the Moenkopi Formation in Capitol Reef National Park near Torrey, Utah. The tracks are preserved in a fine-grained sandstone deposited on a flat-lying coastal plain.view more

When sedimentary host rock is heated as a result of coal seam fires, the host rock is pyro-metamorphosed (high temperature/ low pressure) resulting in the formation of paralava, a low-grade metamorphic rock formed adjacent to coal seams. This paper describes an outcrop locality of clinker (paralava) in the Upper Cretaceous Blackhawk Formation within the Book Cliffs coalfields of central Utah, which formed as the result of a coal seam fire.view more

According to Carl Sagan (1987), "Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge." Field studies and undergraduate research provide students with the best opportunities for "thinking" about science, while at the same time acquiring a body of knowledge. Natural History of Tropical Carbonate Ecosystems is a spring semester course cross-listed in biology, geology, and environmental studies, with a prerequisite of two semesters of introductory biology, geology, or environmental science. The purpose of the course is to provide from these three discipline areas an introduction to the unique ecology and geology of tropical-marine ecosystems with an emphasis on the Bahamas, including additional opportunities to investigate problems of human impact on tropical island marine and non-marine ecosystems and island karst hydrologic systems.
A general introduction to inorganic chemistry designed for family and consumer sciences, agriculture, nursing and other students who need only one year of basic chemistry
