If you can fish for an A, you should definitely go for it; if you can’t fish for an A, you can always come up with something else to get an A.
Upon our trip to Lee’s Ferry, we have to come up with our own research projects. So, I have to ask myself, “What do geologists do anyway?”
I came up with 4 short and direct answers (that’s how science students should write their papers: get to the point).
- We look for things.
- We describe things.
- We measure things.
- We interpret things.
That sounds about right. There might be some other things that I missed out, but I do not have time to write as I am trying to get this blog post done. You would have thought that as a Senior, I would be good at time management (and less procrastination).
So, we can do anything for this project. However, there is a catch: It has to be scientific.
Jason and I think that it is scientific to look for petrified wood. After all, we make use of our skills as geology students: looking for things, describing things, measuring things, and interpreting things!
It seems feasible. What do you think?
