Episode 148: Unlocking the next generation of geophysicists


Warren Neff and Luke Gallery discuss exposing high school students to geophysics and how to incorporate the field into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs.

Warren Neff is a STEM teacher at Bartlesville High School in Bartlesville, OK. Luke Gallery is a senior at Bartlesville High School. Luke and Warren published a paper titled, "Past geophysics science fair projects inspire new ideas in a high school STEM setting" in the March 2022 The Leading Edge.

Warren discusses how to incorporate geophysics into STEM programs, how to recruit mentors for students, and why shooting rockets in hallways is the best way to teach quadratics. Luke shares how he went from never hearing of geophysics to publishing papers and considering it for his major. Additionally, Warren highlights why keeping it real is the best way to teach students any subject.
