Science of the World
Join all the folks learning what's new in geology and the related sciences as geoscience organizations celebrate Earth Science Week 2012. This year's theme is geoscience careers--learn about the broad range of career opportunities in geoscience. If you're a teacher, find materials useful for teaching at levels from kindergarten through high school.
Earth science touches upon many, many aspects of life: the basic resources used for building homes, factories, other infrastructure, and many consumer goods; natural hazards such as floods and volcanoes; the supply of drinking water; and how we have been affecting our planet and environment as we change landscapes and produce wastes of all sorts.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), with support from other geoscience societies, industry, and government agencies, has been organizing and coordinating efforts to bring earth science to public view and appreciation for several years now.
