Geologic Extension Service | Science Outreach

Dear Teachers,

The Geological Extension Service (GES) exists in part to support the efforts of Arizona educators teaching in the Earth sciences.   We regularly peruse the web environment for sites that actively support K-12 science education, and then we post the best of those sites on our link page.  Join our network, share, and discover!

We also have physical material – maps, posters, and reports – that we provide free to teachers visiting us at the Arizona Geological Survey Bookstore at 416 W. Congress, Tucson.   Listed below are items currently in stock.   Teachers, when you arrive at our store please alert the bookstore staff that you are interested in seeing our education outreach materials. We hope to see you soon!
