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!

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.

School and youth group registration for guided visits is now closed.

We look forward to welcoming school and youth groups to ESfS March 18-20, 2018! On Sunday afternoon and Monday evening, 20 Girl Guide, Brownie, Pathfinder, Sparks, Cubs, and Scout groups will attend with 414 young people. On Monday and Tuesday, 1,378 grade 1 to 7 students in 18 school groups will attend ESfS.
