Alexandria, Va. – The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is now accepting advance orders for the Earth Science Week 2014 Toolkit. The Toolkit contains educational materials for all ages that correspond to this year’s event theme, “Earth’s Connected Systems.”
Materials include the traditional program poster and school-year activity calendar, as well as resources from distinguished program partners such as the U.S. Geological Survey, NASA, the National Park Service, Esri, ExxonMobil, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and professional geoscientific societies. This year’s Toolkit provides students with the opportunity to learn about the dynamic interactions of the planet’s natural systems.
Earth Science Week is an annual event that has been led by AGI along with its sponsors and the greater geoscience community since 1998. Each year, community groups, educators, and interested citizens organize celebratory events across the country to educate the public. Activities allow participants to discover the Earth sciences and engage in responsible stewardship of the planet.
Earth Science Week is supported by the U.S. Geological Survey; the AAPG Foundation; NASA; the National Park Service; Esri; the American Geophysical Union; the Geological Society of America; the Association of American State Geologists; National Geographic Education; the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration; the Archaeological Institute of America; and others.
