Geoscience Exposure and Training in Texas
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
