Gallery Fall 2006
The ELT students and faculty are involved with many different academic and co-cirricular activities every year. This is a gallery of images from the Fall Semester 2006. Go here for the Spring Semester events.
NOTE: This file is graphics-intensive, and so it may take a while to download.
At Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Dr. Merck leads his team against the nasty invasive aquatic plant Hydrilla...
...while Dr. Holtz returns to Clagett Farm with a group of freshmen and alumni to harvest vegetables, pull weeds, and mend fences.
An update at the Smithsonian's "Voyage: A Journey Through the Solar System" outdoor exhibit: condolence cards for Pluto's recent "demotion" to "dwarf planet."
Drs. Holtz & Merck, and last year's Undergrad TA Annette Mitchell, were proud to honor the ELT Scholars Citation Class of 2006!
The ELT Freshmen construct a geologic timeline of the Earth at the scale of 1 cm = 1,000,000 years. (Windy weather prevented Dr. Holtz's more grandiose scheme of 10 cm = 1,000,000 years. Perhaps next year...)
On a blustery late October day, ELT students explore western Maryland geology, including our annual pilgrimage to Sideling Hill. Dale Shelton (of the Maryland Geological Survey) is once again there to lead us onto the outcrop.
On Halloween, the ELT freshmen test their handsample lithological identification skills, after some
instruction by TA Eugenia Leone. And because it WAS Halloween...
ELT students travel to examine animal diversity and conservation issues at the National Zoo.
The Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences was the last field trip site for the Fall Semester. Here students explore current topics in Science.
