Rock your classroom with a mountainous understanding of earth science topics!

Each workshop is designed to help you better understand and communicate the geological content presented. You will leave with useful resources to help your students excel in earth science, including interesting classroom materials, outstanding specimen kits, and maybe even one of our many door prizes. Programs are facilitated by a professional geophysicist with extensive teaching experience. Participants will receive a Heard certificate of completion of 6-6.5 hours of continuing education in Earth Science.

These programs are geared towards educators; however, all adults (ages 18+) that are interested in Earth Sciences are welcome to participate!
