G-Camp Needs Your Help
This is an innovative, new approach to addressing all those things we like to complain about when we talk about the future of science and geosciences. We love to say it is the 4th - 12th grade teachers who do not have sufficient understanding of the geosciences to teach and inspire students to pursue the professions. It is students who are not receiving the field experience or encouragement in college to pursue the geoscience profession. Rather than continuing to wring our hands, we are going to take a positive step to change. We have committed ourself to doing this. We need you, as an Industrial Affiliate, to join with us to bring this approach to reality.
