Formalizing Your Curiousity

As we discussed in class, and as your handout details, for next time please schedule, prepare for, complete, and take notes on your interview with the member of the faculty or staff you have selected.  Remember that this interview should focus on the process and methods of research, not the subject matter.  Please bring your notes to our next class.
Congratulations to tonight's presenters, and happy extended preparation (as needed) to next week's.  In the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite dramatic monologues by Robert Browning.  Also consider this article on the father of geology, and consider the ramifications of the fossils-are-rocks-that-fell-from-the-moon theory which preceded Steno's work.
