Teachers, counselors, and principals are crucial to the success of GeoFORCE. They offer invaluable insight on the students and help with recruiting great kids. They help students with applications, and they help us stay in contact with the students throughout the year. Teachers are also hired by GeoFORCE as educational coaches for each of the summer field trips. In that role, they help keep scientists on track and understandable to the kids.
One way we say thank you is by offering two-day professional development workshops and field trips, twice a year. These workshops provide teachers with valuable classroom resources, and they give educators a taste of the GeoFORCE Texas program and what it has to offer.
