“Mammoth” Science Fair Project

Kudos to Katelyn Gibbs, a ninth-grader (!) at Great Falls High School in Montana, who followed some tips from a veteran earth science researcher and–with a great deal of dedication and digging–unearthed evidence that a comet or meteorite hit Montana about 13,000 years ago and had a huge impact on animals living there. She has presented her findings to conferences of professional geologists. Read more about her curiosity and perserverance here.
