Picture Yourself as an Earth Scientist

Students, faculty and staff in Appalachian State University’s Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences are giving regional K–12 students the opportunity to step into the shoes of a geologist, a paleontologist, a volcanologist or even a deep ocean explorer through the department’s Picture Yourself as an Earth Scientist (PYES) mobile photo booth.

The booth is used in the department’s outreach programs to raise awareness for geoscience careers and the importance of earth science literacy.
