|Geoscience Educators' Social Reception|
Calling all K-12 teachers and Pre-Service students!
Join us for a day-long K-12 event.
- Special K-12 Teacher Day Field Trip, Workshop and Share-A-Thon
Sat., 21 Oct., 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Cosponsored by GSA Geoscience Education Division
- We will begin with an urban field trip through parts of Philadelphia, where we will observe various rocks and other natural building materials as they are used for construction and architectural aesthetics. Search for fossils on building faces, find the rare Pennsylvania bluestone, and measure microclimates and noise that is enhanced or mitigated by building designs. In the afternoon workshop and share-a-thon, you can be inspired by guest speakers who will share their stories, network with fellow teachers and geologists, and pick up new lesson ideas. Guest passes to the opening of the Annual Meeting Exhibit Hall will be available to participants. The participation fee for the entire day is only US$15 and includes lunch and giveaways.
Registration for the GSA Meeting is not required to attend, although you must register for the event itself.
- The registration form is available online at www.physics.purdue.edu/gsa/.
