Welcome to our "Make Earth Science Accessible" program

In the Newton Horace Winchell School of Earth Sciences, we teach and conduct research on a range of geoscience-related topics, and our MESA program makes some of the educational and research material accessible to the public through a series of exhibits in and around John T. Tate Hall on the east bank of the UMN Twin Cities campus.
