Capstone in Italy

Dr. Chad Heinzel led two classes of Environment, Technology and Society to Italy as well as the island of Sicily during the month of May.  Both courses were offered through the Study Abroad program and they provided students the opportunity to learn about the history, culture and changing environment of these ancient regions.  The progress of the students could also be tracked on the Earth Science Facebook page through GPS signals uploaded to a server on a regular basis.  In addition to seeing the regular sites, the volcanoes of Sicily were also explored.
