Proyecto Dinosaurios

Community colleges are key targets to mitigate the severe under-representation of ethnic minorities in the geosciences. “Proyecto Dinosaurios” is a National Science Foundation-funded project of the Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) program that aims at building a network of cooperation between community colleges in the greater Los Angeles, the Dinosaur Institute, and the University of Southern California, and to use the appeal of dinosaurs to engage underrepresented undergraduates in geoscience research.  Learn More
