Current Issue

The Fall 2015 issue of The Earth Scientist is packed with information to engage students - from the robotics in Engineering to Explore the Ocean to exploring how floods happen and our responses to them to bringing the excitement of lightning into the classroom to explain safety. "It's Elementary" - a new, monthly column - makes its debut appearance in the pages of TES looking at different kinds of Earth materials. AGI's Earth Science Week is highlighted with daily activities, ideas on how to get involved, and lots of links. We also remember the passing of Jan Woerner, long-time supporter of the Earth Sciences and past-President of NESTA.

As we move into the digital format for the Journal, we encourage you to engage with us in creating a Journal that can meet the demands of the 21st century classroom and the teachers and students that make it come alive.
