OnRamps Geoscience


Project Leader: Kathy Ellins

Program Description

The University of Texas offers a Geoscience dual enrollment course through the OnRamps program. Using a hybrid delivery approach, students meet rigorous university-level college readiness standards and have the opportunity to earn UT Austin credit from a faculty member in the Jackson School of Geosciences and high school credit from their local teacher. OnRamps incorporates an organized data and action analytics approach to support students, teachers, and districts in their pursuit of educational excellence. The course uses reviewed, tested curriculum resources available from SERC, IRIS, and other trustworthy providers.
