The K-12 Education Fund was established by the AEG Foundation to advocate the learning and teaching of the science of geology in K-12 education. Initial funding was provided by the AEG Foundation Greatest Need Fund.
K-12 education provides an important developmental stage in a student’s education. The coursework to which students are exposed during this stage can spark interest in geology and influence the choices they continue to make in their academic career paths.
The Fund was inspired by members of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG) K-12 Education Committee and the Committee’s preparation of the AEG Policy Statement on Promoting Geology in K-12 Education adopted by the AEG Board of Directors on April 16, 2011.
The purpose of the K-12 Education Fund is to encourage K-12 students, K-12 teachers, and elementary, middle and high schools to explore methods and technologies to teach geology including, but not limited to, hands-on demonstrations of classroom activities and materials, attendance at earth science meetings focusing on methods and technologies to learn and teach geology, geologic field trips, invited professional demonstrations, and related activities.
Recipients of grants must be accredited K-12 teachers, an elementary, middle or high school, or an
accredited school district within the United States. Membership in AEG is not a requirement, but
