Become an EC

Educational Coaches are an important part of the educational team on GeoFORCE trips. They help the students learn by assisting the instructor, clarifying the material, and providing fun review sessions. EC’s grade the daily quizzes and the final exams.

What makes a good EC? First, enthusiasm for teaching and for kids. Second, creativity. Third, dedication to focus on higher level thinking skills. It helps if you know geology, but you don’t have to be an expert.

If you are interested, contact the GeoFORCE staff and let us know. Field trip dates are on the calendar.
