- NAGT Needs Your Photos
The NAGT Executive Director's Office is looking for members willing to share their geology-related photos. Generally, we are looking for images that can be used on the NAGT website as well as in publications. More specifically, we are looking for images from Colorado to use in the program for the Annual Meeting at GSA this fall in Denver.
If you have images to share with NAGT, just go to the upload form on the website and either upload your photo or give us the URL if it is already online (such as in a Flickr stream).
The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) was established in 1938 to foster improvement in the teaching of earth sciences at all levels of formal and informal instruction, to emphasize the cultural significance of the earth sciences, and to disseminate knowledge in this field to the general public.
NAGT organizes the technical program in geoscience education at every GSA Annual Meeting, and in this context also sponsors numerous technical sessions, workshops, and field trips. The organization also fosters advances in the teaching and learning of geoscience by means of scholarship aid to summer field-camp students, professional workshops for geoscience faculty, its Distinguished Speaker Series, and the Journal of Geoscience Education and through its partnership with the National Association for Black Geologists and Geophysicists.
In 2003 the Central Section of the NAGT was reorganized to include the former Central and East-Central Sections.
