Earth Science Week 2022 Toolkits Available

The WSGS has 50 complimentary toolkits to offer Wyoming classrooms

The 2022 Earth Science Week toolkits are now available for Wyoming classrooms. The 50 toolkits, provided by the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) to the Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS), are available at no cost to Wyoming educators on a first come, first served basis.

Earth Science Week is Oct. 9–15 and celebrates the theme, “Earth Science for a Sustainable World.” The 2022 event emphasizes the essential role of earth science in helping people make decisions that maintain and strengthen the planet’s ability to support thriving life, according to the AGI’s website.   

“The Wyoming State Geological Survey appreciates the AGI’s generosity in providing complimentary toolkits for teachers across the state,” says Dr. Erin Campbell, WSGS Director and Wyoming State Geologist. “These toolkits are beneficial to classrooms—they contain interesting educational material that gets students excited about the earth sciences.”

Toolkits are suitable for middle-school-age students. This year’s toolkit include the WSGS postcard depicting the geologic map of Wyoming and samples of rocks found in the state. Other items are:
