Science Explorers Club’s (SEC) goal is to help increase cultural diversity in the Geosciences, especially among Native Americans.  In San Diego, Kumeyaay, Luiseno, Cupeno, and Cahuilla people live on reservations.  Applying research showing that vocational interest is acquired around ages 7-8, SEC takes Indian children outdoors monthly on their own lands to explore activities related to geology, hydrology, botany, ethnobotany, ecology, herpetology, ornithology, and entomology.  Being a geologist, I particularly focus them on the geological forces that have changed their own land through time.
