Earth Science for Society

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. 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 March 17-19, 2019! Last year we welcomed 20 youth groups and 18 school groups from 16 different schools.

Guided youth group visits will take place Sunday March 17 or the evening of Monday March 18, 2019.

Guided school visits will take place Monday March 18 and Tuesday March 19, 2019.

Any school or youth group may come at any time for an unguided visit.

Registration opens on October 1, 2018.
