Support NAGT's Professional Development Fund »
NAGT's core professional development program includes workshops, webinars, conferences, online resource collections and other efforts that support geoscience educators. The goal of this program is to improve teaching and learning about the Earth.
The NAGT sponsors a number of activities and projects in geoscience education that forward its mission and goals. Learn more about how to request sponsorship.
The NAGT supports both educators and students through a variety of awards including the Outstanding Earth Science Teacher award, the Neil Miner award, the James Shea award, and summer field programs.
These faculty have given talks on various topics over the years. If you are looking for a geoscience speaker for your event, start here.
The Geoscience Teachers-in-the-Parks program is an offshoot of the National Park Services Geoscientists-in-the-Parks program which places geoscientists in parks on a short-term basis to help park-specific research, education, and interpretative projects. The program will run for the final time in the summer of 2015.
The Serving our Communities initiative celebrates the ways that educators and students are engaging with local, national and global communities and supports expansion of these efforts. This set of pages includes a blog that showcases the ways in which geoscience educators are serving their communities - local, regional, state, national and international - through their own teaching, research and service, or by engaging their students in these areas.
