“They were in the best classroom there is – the one with no walls.” – Sally Jewell, AGI Earth Science Education Ambassador
As featured in a new video released today, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and its partners – the Geological Society of America (GSA), the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources, the National Park Service, Valles Caldera National Preserve, the Pueblo of Jemez, San Diego Riverside Charter School, and Jemez Valley Middle School – joined together in late September to facilitate an outstanding day of outdoor earth science learning. Eighth-grade students from two local schools worked with Earth Science Education Ambassador Sally Jewell and additional geoscientists to explore and understand the structure, deposits, and hazards posed by volcanoes in their own backyard.
Former Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell is AGI’s 2018 Earth Science Education Ambassador, working to raise awareness of the critical role of Earth science and highlight this year's theme: Earth as Inspiration.
Watch and share this video and help Jewell and AGI explore the different ways Earth inspires us to learn, conserve, contribute, and create.https://EarthScienceAmbassa...
