Geophysical Information for Teachers (GIFT) Workshop

Earth's Surface: Where Biology and Geology Interact

When: Thursday and Friday, December 17–18, 2009 (8:30 AM – 3:30 PM)
Where: Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco

In December 2009, more than 15,000 Earth and space scientists from around the world will convene in San Francisco to attend the AGU Fall Meeting and you can benefit from this scientific gathering!

  • Are you a current or pre-service middle or secondary school teacher interested in learning about the latest research on hydrology and water resources?
  • The critical zone observatories (Southern Sierra, Boulder Creek and Susquehanna-Shale Hills) are tackling overarching science questions that couple hydrology, geomorphology, and biogeochemical systems. Come learn what scientists are finding out.
  • As part of this scientific conference, there will be a two-day workshop for middle and secondary school teachers. We are pleased to invite you to participate! The workshop presenters will be a combination of leading scientists and science educators.

The GIFT workshop registration is now closed.
