|FORWARD by Richard Bayless|
I taught "Integrated Science", "Geothermal Energy" and other science and math courses at the University of Montana College of Technology (Now Missoula College) for several years. I recently spent a few months working for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources in the Oil and Gas Division and I am now planning for a busy term, again teaching Science and Math. I have taught introductory college courses since 1981. For decades students have been telling me they did not like Science (or math) before they took a course with me. Apparently I communicate well with people who have limited background but sincere interest. I started Geoscience Tours because I really enjoy introducing people to Science and I believe there is an element of public service in the work I do.
