Earth Science Week Activities Reach 10 Million People Globally
An estimated 10 million people worldwide learned about earth science through program promotions, education efforts and media coverage during Earth Science Week held in October, according to the American Geological Institute.
With a theme of “No Child Left Inside,” a number of outreach events were held, from individual teachers and classes conducting playground science projects to open houses at major U.S. Geological Survey field stations.
AGI said Earth Science Week activities were promoted and covered by scores of newspapers, television stations, Web sites and other media outlets worldwide.
AAPG Foundation support included the distribution of promotional posters via the EXPLORER and the Association providing information for the teaching packets that included activities throughout the year.
