Hudley, and two IDEA undergraduate students to learn about geology concepts, peak oil, the environmental and economic decision-making involved with oil extraction, and careers in geology.  As part of the Saturday Academy, the students engaged in a simulation game where they had to work as a team to drill for oil.  Participants also discussed stereotypes in the sciences and how scientists should be as diverse as the people of the world.
