Earth Science Week is an international event that helps grade school students and teachers understand Earth science and to be good stewards of the planet. Since 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized, publicized and provided materials for this grass roots effort, which depends on local geoscience and education groups to be successful. In 2016, AAPG volunteers in Latin America & Caribbean are working with local partners to take the initiative to schools throughout the region. Javed Razack, vice president of the AAPG Trinidad and Tobago Young Professionals Chapter, shares his experience with Earth Science Week in the following article.
