5th/6th grade GT students participated in “Skype a Scientist” today. Students spent about an hour visiting with Ayla Pamukcu, a geologist. More specifically, she is a volcanologist/igneous petrologist who studies volcanoes and volcanic eruptions. She discussed many places around the world that she has visited while studying volcanoes, her favorite being Antarctica. The most interesting fact that our students learned was that Arkoma was deep in an ocean long ago!
