Celebrate Earth Science Week – Oct. 12-18, 2008

Earth Science Week 2008 will be celebrated from Oct. 12-18. The theme for this year’s celebration is “No Child Left Inside.” This celebration encourages young people to learn about the geosciences by getting away from the television, off the computer and out of doors.

During Earth Science Week, educators are encouraged to bring some aspect of Earth science into their classrooms, and to take their classrooms outside! Each year, local groups, educators and interested individuals organize celebratory events. Earth Science Week offers opportunities to discover the Earth sciences and engage in responsible stewardship of the Earth.

The American Geological Society hosts Earth Science Week, in cooperation with sponsors, as a service to the public and the geoscience community. The event is supported by NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, the National Park Service, the AAPG Foundation and other geoscience groups.
