The Teacher Leadership Academy provides teachers with Earth science content, hands-on activities, educational resources, and real-world science experiences that participants can use with their students in the classroom and with their colleagues in professional development settings. Teachers can promote a sense of wonder that is only deepened and enhanced by an understanding of geoscience.
