What is GeoExplorers?
The GeoExplorers Program is designed to provide the K12 community access to some of Earth’s natural wonders. Through this program students can explore some of Earth’s most exciting natural wonders, like getting up close and personal with Mt. St. Helens and Kilauea volcanoes or transforming themselves into a rock and taking a journey along the rock cycle! GeoExplorers offers online modules and access to the GeoBox program, a lending program for K-12 schools.
Learning about geology can have barriers, such as acquisition of costly samples or safe and easy access to areas of interest. To help overcome these barriers, Bridgewater State University Department of Geological Sciences can bring some of these wonders to local classrooms. The goal of this program is to make learning geology fun and accessible to anyone!
The GeoBox program provides lending kits developed by BSU’s Geoscience department. Each GeoBox includes lessons and geologic specimens on loan through the department.
