Dear colleagues,

We would like to make you aware of a session for students to present 5 minute talks on demonstrations and education/outreach activities in the geosciences.  Submitting an abstract to this session does not count against the one abstract limit and is a great way to gain speaking experience.  

Thank you,

John Leeman & Hannah Rabinowitz


Keeping Geology Alive: Interactive Demonstrations in the Earth Sciences (Pop-Ups)

Session ID#: 2518
Session Description:

This session offers students an opportunity to give a 5 minute presentation focused on outreach and classroom activities and demonstrations related to the geosciences.  Presentations can cover classroom and public demonstrations, methods, or platforms for sharing geoscience research to students and/or the public  in an accessible and engaging way.  Inclusion of videos and instructions is encouraged.  Submissions are restricted to students and do not count towards the single lead author abstract limit for AGU.  The goal of this session is to share ideas for engaging students and the public in geosciences research.  A blog will be maintained at http://keepinggeologyalive.blogspot.com and will include content that presenters wish to make public, including but not limited to videos and instructions on how a demonstration was conducted.
