How we help
We make a difference for teachers and students in Earth sciences through four key initiatives:
in Your Head
This hands-on interactive workshop equips teachers to bring engaging Earth science lessons to their classroom.
Rock, Mineral & Fossil Collections
Our Rock, Mineral & Fossil Collections bring science to life for students of all ages as they get hands-on with rocks, minerals, and fossils.
This program lets students explore Oklahoma landscapes and geology from a computer at home or in the classroom.
We award grants and scholarships at the elementary, secondary, and higher education levels, including field camp grants for graduate students.
