Session ED003

Broader Impacts of EarthScope: Geoscience Education and Outreach Activities

Description: Instrumentation and activities of the EarthScope program have spanned the contiguous US and are planned to be deployed in Alaska. As findings based on EarthScope science appear in the research literature, they are highlighted in the press and social media. More and more educators use EarthScope facilities, research activities, data, and results in teaching, STEM teacher professional development, place-based education, and public Earth science literacy in formal and informal contexts. Educators and researchers who use EarthScope facilities, projects, data, or findings for geoscience education or outreach to students, teachers, decision-makers, and the public can feature and share practices, materials, and outcomes.

Conveners: Steven Semken ([log in to unmask]), Sarah Robinson, and Ramón Arrowsmith, EarthScope National Office, Arizona State University
