National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT)


Field experiences are an important part of the life of the geoscience student and professional. We take our students to the field to see fundamental relationships and to learn to observe, collect and interpret data. This website exists to facilitate interactions and sharing that will: enable NAGT sections to learn from one another in order to elevate the quality of their field offerings around the country; promote models for effective educational field trips to geoscientists around the world; and provide an archive of field guides furthering the ability of K-12 teachers, faculty, community groups, and others to lead scientifically accurate, pedagogically effective field trips.
