Earth Science for Society (ESfS) is a free event, open to the public, which showcases the importance of Earth Science in our everyday lives. Presenters at the four themed pavilions, Resources and You, Energy for Us, One Dynamic Earth, and Our Future!, will give dynamic demonstrations and have interactive exhibits for experiential learning. The ever-popular Yukon Dan gold mining exhibit will be returning and ESfS will be running a fossil station!
The Earth Science industry has so much to offer everyone. Besides employment for geoscientists, environmental engineers, computer programmers, IT people and data managers, there are opportunities for surveyors, safety and rescue personnel, helicopter pilots, mechanics, engineers, sales and marketing people, personnel managers, and many more. There are prospective careers for all students.
Any school or youth group may come at any time for an unguided visit.
Guided school visits will take place Monday March 19 and Tuesday March 20, 2018.
We welcome youth groups on Sunday March 18, 2018 for a guided visit. Groups will also be able to register for the evening of Monday March 19, 2018. If there is enough interest, we will run a Monday evening session.
Registration opens on October 1, 2017.
Invitation letter and booking forms coming soon.
