Creative Inquiry

Current Projects


Institutionalizing Creative Inquiry in the Undergraduate Research Component of the Geology Curriculum Using the Clemson Forest and the Clemson Campus

Description

This group represents the senior year culmination of the 6 semester Geology Undergraduate Creative Inquiry process. The students complete their senior capstone project in the fall and make oral and poster presentations of their research in the spring.
