Zach Presents a Poster at the Ice Age Symposium

Everyone knows about The Ice Age; usually a reference to Earth's most recent global cold snap that abated 12,000 years ago. Fewer people know that the last two million years may have hosted 50 or more glacial advances and retreats and glacial climates are far from a recent phenomenon in Earth's history.

Zach Sepulveda, a member of the Earth Science Scholar program of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and the Pikes Peak Pebble Pups is attending the Western Interior Paleontological Society's Founders Symposium: Ice Age Worlds and their Fossils at the Colorado School of Mines.

Zach presented his poster on Saturday and Sunday, March 16th and 17th, 2013 at the Green Center on the Colorado School of Mines campus. 
The title of his poster is: Ice Age Poetry: Sensing the Pleistocene. Zach is also a member of the Colorado Scientific Society.

Zach's abstract was published in the symposium proceedings
along with all of the scientists who were doing oral presentations. In addition to his abstract being published by the symposium, Zach's art work and Ice Age paleontology poetry was featured on the first page of the proceedings to really set the theme of the once frozen world and its creatures.

 Zach assisted with setting up each speaker's PowerPoint
presentation. He  had to load both day's programs onto
the main PC, and then start each program for the individual

A record crowd of scientists, museum curators, paleontology enthusiasts, authors, artists, and Earth science students attended the two-day event in Golden, Colorado.

Welcome! This is the gateway to adventure and discovery

Through this blog pebble pups and junior members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society can access their lessons, work on assignments and projects, and receive details about field trips in the Pikes Peak Region. This Internet program is also suitable for young people who are interested in Earth science but do not live near a rock club or gem and mineral society or for young people anywhere who want a deeper dive into these topics. The only requirement is that all participants must be members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and must fill out the CSMS membership form (under important websites) and send their registration and membership fee in. Steven Veatch is the senior instructor and will need an email from you with your name, address, phone number, and permission from your parents to participate in this program.
