The American Geosciences Institute was pleased to recognize three outstanding projects by pre-college students at this year's Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) on May 19, 2017, in Los Angeles, Calif. This year's award recipients showcased a broad range of exciting geoscience topics including geothermal vents, paleontology, soil contamination, and volcanoes. In support of Intel ISEF, AGI sponsors a first place award of $1,250; a second award of $1000; and a third award of $500.
The Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) launched the latest plush toy Kickstarter for its wildly popular "Paleozoic Pals" series. Paleozoic Pals, was designed to bring lesser-known and lesser sized -yet just as important- fossil creatures to life for the community of scientists, students, and the public as a whole to enjoy.
