Summer Academy

GeoFORCE Texas Summer Academies are week long excursions that will allow you to see the many geological wonders of the United States.

Through in-class coursework and hands-on field trips, the Summer Academies teach students about the formation of the Earth, and the geological processes that shape it.  The Academies are led by Jackson School professors and research scientists, who are assisted by high school science teachers, and industry professionals. GeoFORCE students who are now in college serve as counselors and mentors.

Students will experience science in ways they simply can’t in the classroom.  They will be fascinated, awestruck, and amazed.  They will learn more than they ever expected, and they will form deep and lasting friendships.
