- Interested in learning more about how to increase diversity in the sciences?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
Successfully meeting global environmental and resource challenges requires science students from diverse backgrounds who are prepared for jobs ranging from petroleum geologist to sustainability business consultant. To educate this workforce requires that we attract diverse students into the STEM sciences, support them fully in our programs, and assist them as they transition into the workforce.
- InTeGrate is Pleased to Announce the Publication of a New Teaching Module: Living on the Edge: Building Resilient Societies on Active Plate Margins
Geological monitoring can greatly improve our planning for and response to catastrophic events such as earthquakes and volcanoes. In light of recent tragic events in Nepal, this teaching module provides timely instruction for students to personally experience that geoscience is a complex, interdisciplinary effort with real-world implications.
- Earth Educators' Rendezvous-- Oral and Poster Sessions Announced. Early bird registration deadline: April 13
Many of us have interests in multiple areas of Earth Science education (in addition to our discipline-specific interests), and the Rendezvous is designed to allow attendees to explore these areas in ways not possible during conventional scientific meetings. The Contributed Program is a critical component to this end, and offers both a venue to present work and an opportunity to see the depth and breadth of what is going on in the Earth Science education community. Now is the time to register– Early bird deadline is April 13!
