Earth Science Week Houston

Earth Science Week 2013 will feature the first city-specific celebration of the national geoscience awareness campaign, “Earth Science Week Houston,” which takes place October 13-19, 2013.

Houston educators and organizations are longtime supporters of Earth Science Week. AGI is collaborating with the Houston Geological Society (HGS) and the Houston Independent School District (HISD) to extend and deepen the reach of the program throughout the Houston area this year with special events, educational materials, online resources, and activities in schools and other settings.

To support this celebration, AGI is donating an Earth Science Week 2013 Toolkit to each of HISD’s approximately 280 schools. Each kit contains dozens of study guides, posters, disks, and other resources for Earth science education, which school district officials are working with teachers to use in inspiring activities in the classroom.

AGI also recently launched the Earth Science Week Houston web site (http://www.earthsciweek.org/eswhouston/index.html) to provide links to additional educational resources as well as events and contests for Houston students. For more information, visit the event site or HGS online (http://www.hgs.org/education_EarthScienceWeek).
