RLC Physical Science goes on an adventure

Greg Hollmann, Associate Professor of Physical Sciences at Rend Lake College decided it was just too nice outside to keep his students sealed in the classroom. Hollmann took his Physical Sciences Classes out to explore Camp Ondessonk in the Shawnee National Forest to put their knowledge to the test.

Throughout the day, the crew studied rock types, along with the geologic history of the area that led to the present features of the Shawnee Hills. Students from the Physical Geology class presented on different topics connecting their studies and what we were seeing on the day of the trip. Physical Science students pictured, in alphabetical order:

Kaitlyn Allen (Ashley), Charles Allsopp (Pinckneyville), Sandra Arcospiedra-Crone (Mt. Vernon), Emeri Arro (Sesser), Ciara Beaumont (McLeansboro), Kathleen Boling (Mt.
