DID YOU KNOW?

The unique geology and climate of Utah’s deserts makes them great to simulate the arid terrain of Mars! The Mars Desert Research Station near Hanksville, Utah is home to stations designed to train future astronauts to perform field studies on the surface of the Red Planet.

Department Highlight

Geology and Geophysics

The Department of Geology & Geophysics has a highly successful science communication and outreach program that brings our Earth science graduate students into the Salt Lake City classrooms. Each year, Williamson Science Communication Fellows work with 7th-12th graders from the Salt Lake Center for Science Education (SLCSE) Bryant Middle School. This year, the Fellows took 100 SLCSE students on a field trip to the Great Salt Lake, and hosted the students on the U campus for a variety of hands-on activities in the department. The Fellows also helped 200 students and parents evaluate the water samples from their home at the Citizen Science Water Fair. This Fellowship program provides science communication experience while encouraging diversity in the geosciences.
