Alexandria, Va. - The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is now accepting advance orders for the Earth Science Week 2015 Toolkit. The Toolkit contains educational materials for all ages that correspond to this year's event theme, "Visualizing Earth Systems."
Materials include the traditional program poster and school-year activity calendar, as well as a DVD, posters, activities, and other resources from distinguished program partners. This year's Toolkit provides students with the opportunity to learn about the many exciting ways that scientists visually represent information about Earth systems.
Earth Science Week (October 11-17, 2015) is an annual event that has been led by AGI along with its sponsors and the greater geoscience community since 1998. Each year, community groups, educators, and interested citizens organize celebratory events across the country to educate the public. Activities allow participants to discover the Earth sciences and engage in responsible stewardship of the planet.
Earth Science Week is supported by the U.S. Geological Survey; the AAPG Foundation; NASA; the National Park Service; Esri; the American Geophysical Union; the Geological Society of America; the Association of American State Geologists; National Geographic Education; the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration; the Archaeological Institute of America; and others.
