Come find our more about the amazing field of Earth sciences! Since October 1998, the American Geological Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. The objectives of Earth Science Week are to:
Here at the University of Connecticut Center for Integrative Geosciences, we hope to bring Earth science to life for the public and students with this day-long celebration highlighting Earth science processes through hands-on activities for all ages, showing Earth science movies, hosting a 'bring your own rock to be identified' table, walking field trips around campus, and doing demonstrations of various types to engage everyone.
Only 2 days left until Earth Science Week Celebration!!! Hope to see you Sunday!
