The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce the completion of fifty new factsheets, which quantify the tangible contributions of geoscience (earth science) to the economy, environment, public health and safety of every U.S. state.
The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology announced its 2017 Symposium will happen in October, 2017. It is billed as "a forum where professionals, students, and amateurs interested in mineralogy and economic geology can share knowledge about mineral occurrences in the northern Rocky Mountain Region." The announcement can be downloaded from this post. For more details visit: https://www.mbmg.mtech.edu.
As part of our effort to enhance geosciences education awareness, the American Geosciences Institute collects science education data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and summarizes the data into reports at the elementary and secondary levels. The data and reports are available here. The data and reports provide geosciences education indicators pertaining to teacher preparation, curriculum, instruction, learning contexts, extra-curricular programs, monitoring systems, and accountability.
