Geology and Physics

Lake Superior State University

Paul Kelso is a Professor of Geology at Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. I enjoy assisting students as they grow and mature as geoscientist and I am always looking for more effective ways to engage students in learning. I have incorporated problem based learning into many of my classes and often these projects have a field focus. My research interests, in addition to geoscience education, include rock magnetism and paleomagnetism which are often applied to tectonic problems. I am also involved in engaging high school students and minorities, particularly Native Americans, in field based geoscience activities.
