The Bureau of Economic Geology is dedicated to providing geoscience opportunities to the K-12 community. We invite your participation in these and other programs.
Environmental Science Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. The Bureau participates in and collaborates with other UT researchers on outreach and research through this network at the University of Texas.
Austin Earth Science Week Consortium. Earth scientists are the professionals who manage and conserve the Earth’s natural resources and study and mitigate the effects of natural hazards. To honor the earth science workforce that provide these critical services to our society, the American Geological Institute established the annual Earth Science Week program. The Bureau, in cooperation with over 30 Central Texas organizations, sponsors Austin Earth Science Week (ESW) each year. Please contact Chair Sigrid Clift for more information about ESW or visit the Texas Earth Science Week website.
Texas High School Science Coastal Monitoring Program. This program led by Bureau researchers has partners from the UT Department of Geologic Sciences and three coastal high schools, and has been supported by grants from NOAA, Exxon Foundation, Conoco, and the Wray Foundation.
