ACE 2018 Earth Science Educator Field Trip Wasatch Front Mt. Nebo

AAPG presents a free Earth Science Educator Program highlighting the rocks, landforms, and geologic history of Utah by way of a workshop and field trip along the foot of the central Wasatch Range. Participants will receive eight hours of relicensure credit, a classroom-ready rock kit with large specimens of each rock type, and locally-oriented supplementary educational materials.

The program is directed toward the 4th, 5th, and 7th grade Utah Science Core Standards for Earth science and will be led by Utah Geological Survey geologists. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis for actively employed school teachers and specialists. Educators from grade levels not specified will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as space is available. Stipends for long-distance travel may be available.
