Geoscience Exposure and Training in Texas


Geoscience Exposure and Training in Texas (GET TX)



We are actively seeking late high school and early
college students and high school teachers
to participate in the four components below.

If you are interested in participating, please contact
Dr. David Moss, Principal Investigator
dxm112@shsu.edu

To meet our goal of understanding student and teacher perspectives, before and after
each event participants will be asked to complete an online survey so that
we can better understand the influence of each component.
Completion of the survey is not required to participate in any of the events.
