Advancing Innovation

PDF versionPDF version

Harnessing the power of innovation is a big part of what makes us great. In the scientific community, we understand this. And at AGI, it lies at the foundation of our mission to connect Earth, science, and people.

The cutting-edge renovation that AGI is undertaking will allow us to train teachers across the country through distance-learning technologies. We will use emerging GIS, 3D-modeling, and satellite-imagery tech to show young people how geoscience applies to the world around them. And we will welcome local educators, students, and the public to hands-on trainings in our new “wet lab” as a way of sharing AGI expertise and resources.

AGI continually pursues innovations that enrich education, the workforce, public policy, recognition of excellence, and news and information products and services vital to the work of geoscience professionals.

Our transformed facility will enable us to upgrade and expand our already innovative programming, offering technology enhancements in service of the community — both locally and globally.

Be an innovator. Share your ideas, talents, and resources. Join us in launching this important new innovation center.
