Cathy Manduca, Carleton College
From developing critical thinking skills to supporting success for all students, geoscience education activities are playing a major role in supporting bigger agendas in higher education. Drawing on recent experience working with the AAAS Education Section, the National Academies Board on Science Education, and other interdisciplinary STEM initiatives, in this talk I will share my reflections on the intersection of geoscience activities and those taking place in the broader arena.
