Netherlands, Crete, Greece, Italy, Egypt, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Iraq, Turkey, India, Mexico, France—this summer break, 20 University of Pennsylvania students (six undergraduate and 14 graduate students) will be doing research in 13 countries around the world, funded in part by competitive Penn Museum summer field research grants.
The projects, supported by Penn and Penn Museum advisors, are diverse, and the experiences promise to be equally varied. Several students have agreed to take us along—virtually—by blogging about their projects.
Meet some of the students (below) who will be sharing their experiences, and follow them in the weeks to come! Remember, you can comment on the blogs, and let the researchers know you are following their work as it unfolds.
