Outstanding students from 8th through 12th grade


Are you a motivated student interested in geology or STEM? Do you like to travel? To learn new concepts alongside like-minded peers? Are you from one of our targeted schools? Then GeoFORCE might be right for you!

GeoFORCE Texas is an amazing summer outreach program that recruits students from economically disadvantaged schools in Southwest Texas and Houston. Our are outstanding students excel in math & science and have the desire and curiosity to learn more. After applying middle school, once accepted our students are given the opportunity to travel across Texas and throughout the country.

Each summer GeoFORCE coordinates 8 field trips to spectacular geologic settings across the Texas and the United States. These field trips allow the students to meet new, inspiring people, gain an understanding of geology and become more aware of possible career paths related to the geosciences.  These trips include locations on the Texas Gulf Coast, the Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, Mt. St. Helens and the Texas Hill Country.

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and individual donors, the program is free to all students that are admitted.

The GeoFORCE Texas application is open for Summer 2020. The application will close Jan. 31,2020.
