Program Overview

Show Me Geology is a K-12 science outreach program initiated by undergraduate students in the Department of Geological Sciences in 1993.  The program now reaches ~1,000 students each year plus dozens of in-service and pre-service teachers. An infusion of NSF funding allowed the program to evolve into a partnership between Geological Sciences and the SDSU Liberal Studies pre-service teacher education program, which the Department of Geological Sciences supports via our Geol 104 and Geol 412 course offerings. Earth Sciences play a prominent role in the K-12 Next Generation Science Standards adopted by California in 2013, and much work needs to be done to ensure adequate implementation.
