The Jackson School Friends and Alumni Network is on a mission to inspire the next generation of geoscientists.
American 15-year-olds now rank 21st in science and 25th in math compared to their peers around the world! We need to explain to students why geology is the science for the 21st century.
We’re asking alumni to serve as role models and ambassadors in their local high schools, sharing our professional materials and answering questions. Real world knowledge is powerful fodder for young people weighing their futures.
Here are your tools
- A high impact, professional video to share with students highlighting geosciences career opportunities, the demand for future geoscientists and the crucial role geoscientists will play in the future.
- Creative leave-behind materials directing them to online resources to learn more
- Website showcasing the breadth and depth of geosciences career paths
- You and your experiences. After the video, share with students your experience and why earth science interests you. Why what you do matters and why the study of the Earth is vital to our future on every level.
