Researchers participated in a week long field experience for high school students to increase the pipeline of diverse students into the geosciences major.  Surveys were conducted with students and their parents to understand what the participants had learned about geosciences. About 56% of respondents indicated an interest in majoring in the geosciences. Findings indicate that early exposure to the geosciences increases interest in the major.
