The Minority Education through Traveling and Learning in the Sciences (METALS) trip across the Western U.S. runs June 11-24, according to Dr. Ivan Gill, a science education coordinator at UNO who leads the program with Dinah Maygarden of PIES. The grant-funded program is a partnership between UNO and three universities: Purdue University, University of Texas at El Paso and San Francisco State University. Each university selects 10 minority high school students to participate in an approximately two-week field-laboratory geology program sponsored by the National Science Foundation and corporations including ExxonMobil. The program is free to participating students.
