Minerals and Fluids Camp provides exposure to geoscience labs, field work, and modeling


Socorro, NM
— July 29, 2022

A weeklong summer camp at New Mexico Tech recently provided a venue for undergraduate students from New Mexico and other states to be exposed to research, field work, and lab opportunities related to geochemistry and minerals, especially rare earth elements. The Minerals and Fluids Summer Camp, offered July 25 to 29, 2022, was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to promote science and educational opportunities for students traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Dr. Alexander Gysi, an economic geologist in the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources and an assistant professor in the Earth and Environmental Science Department, organized the first-ever camp as an outreach component of his NSF Early Career Grant.
