On the day of the field activity, students travel to the GCR to examine the ocean cores that they researched during their pre-field activity. While examining the cores, students describe sediments and rocks, identify lithologies and rock types, note microfossils, and create detailed sketches of the cores. Exposing students to research early in their college careers has many benefits. It promotes cognitive development; encourages effective development such as students' motivation, attitude, enthusiasm, appreciation, feelings, and values; and develops their sense of self. Moreover, research experience at the undergraduate level leads to greater retention of underrepresented students. [Photo by Kusali Gamage]
