Hard at it this new semester

We’re fully onto the new semester; my second lab class I’ve taught at Franklin College. We have two students this time who are each really into learning all they can about fossil preparation. Mackenzie and Elliott are both doing well and enjoying the course so far (I hope!).

In the Fossil Lab working away with air scribe tools unlocking the fossil from surrounding rock matrix.
Look at them, not even posing for the camera for effect. They really were intently working away when I snapped these candid photos.
