The Pennsylvania Space Grant is supporting a new educator workshop for PA teachers (2-credit course) that I have developed. It will focus on
introductory field methods in geoscience and paleontology and will be held in Red Lodge, Montana this summer.

Want to learn more about Earth’s geographic features? This workshop will focus on landscapes, their origin, and recognition of landforms on topographic maps. The topographic map is the most common tool used by geologists, geomorphologists, geographers, landscapers, and land managers to identify landscape types. Topographic maps are also essential as way finders for people in areas that are not familiar to them. These maps represent a three dimensional surface (landscape) on a two dimensional piece of paper by incorporating contour lines that show points of equal elevation.
An item from Astronomy Society of the Pacific newsletter: If you can make a December 9th (Saturday) workshop in St. Louis, you will get a set of 24 Galileoscopes!
The 2016 Shale Network Workshop will take place at the Atherton Hotel in State College, PA, on May 19th - 20th. This year, the theme is "Science and cooperation around water quality data and legacy wells in shale gas basins."

Meet STEM Research Experts
Spend a week at Penn State University Park learning about current bioenergy research from nationally recognized faculty. Renewable Energy alternatives are vital for the health of our planet, and the NEWBio Project, funded by the USDA, is helping us learn more about how to best realize this vision.
The National Association of Geoscience Teachers-Eastern Section (NAGT-ES) is hosting their spring conference, titled “Geological Excursions in the Allegheny Plateau and Valley and Ridge sections,” in Lock Haven, PA. Lock Haven is situated between the Allegheny Plateau Province and the Valley and Ridge Province on the shores of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, in proximity to the Allegheny Front structural escarpment. The history of the area is closely tied to the regional geology. The river was used for transporting lumber to the mills. Friday of the conference will be spent le
