To support Earth sciences being taught in the schools, we provide opportunities for teachers to learn about Earth science along with ways for them to bring current Earth sciences research into their classrooms. Professional development workshops are designed to support teachers in public classrooms by providing connections to the California state standards. In addition we continue to develop educational resources such as curriculum and teaching kits to enhance classroom learning.
If you are interested in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences Teacher Programs, we encourage you to explore our workshops listed below.
