In the field science research group at Earlham, we work on trying to make field science more accessible and collaborative. This research at Earlham has been existent for about four years now. It started as a ‘can we do this?’ in Iceland of 2013, expanded into archaeology, metagenomics, and environmental science in Iceland of 2014, expanded even more into trying to solve the coffee fungus problem in Nicaragua in December of 2014, and has now evolved into everything before, plus sustainable energy production and ecology and ornithology in Iceland during June-July, 2016.

One of the curricular projects we are working on is developing a regularly offered field studies program in Iceland, you can read more about it here.
