Title: Broadening participation in geoscience – experiments in making geoscience relevant and actionable for all
Abstract: Geoscience is central to the ability of communities, the nation and the world to address resource and environmental challenges. Does teaching in the context of these issues increase and diversify participation in geoscience? Attract more majors? This talk will explore two models for linking geoscience to society and the evidence for their success: data rich teaching activities from the InTeGrate STEP Center for the Geosciences and community service opportunities linked to geoscience learning from the EarthConnections Alliance.
