Current Issue

The Summer 2015 issue of The Earth Scientist marks the change over to a digital Journal. This issue contains three articles that will hep you engage students in new and different ways, from getting them excited about the potential of geospatial technologies as a career path to reimagining how to teach about rock types to incorporating local research into water studies to make them truly dynamic. Included as well is an announcement of the annual NESTA awards which were presented in Chicago during the NSTA Annual Conference this past March.

As we move into the digital format for the Journal, we encourage you to engage with us in creating a Journal that can meet the demands of the 21st century classroom and the teachers and students that make it come alive.
