School and Youth Groups

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. We hope that the ever-popular Yukon Dan gold mining exhibit will be returning and ESfS will be running a fossil station!

Earth Science literacy has so much to offer everyone, including future generations of society. Besides careers 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. Students will gain insight into many prospective occupations.

We look forward to welcoming school and youth groups at ESfS November 27-29, 2022! In 2019, we welcomed 25 youth groups and 21 school groups from 17 different schools.

Guided youth group visits will take place the afternoon of Sunday November 27 or the evening of Monday November 28, 2022.

Guided school visits will take place Monday November 28 and Tuesday November 29, 2022.

Registration opens on August 29, 2022.
