Camps and Outreach
Join us for the Geosciences Exploration Summer Program for high school students where you will discover careers that can take you anywhere in the world while staying on the Texas A&M campus and learning what it means to be an Aggie.
June 4-10, 2017
iGeo introduces motivated and talented under-represented high school juniors and seniors to the geosciences. For three days iGeo participants explore educational opportunities, live like a college student, and meet other high school students from around the state.
GIS Day, the annual worldwide salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform and enhance lives, is going to be extra "spatial" this year in Aggieland, where the Texas A&M celebration, one of the world's largest, is expanding to encompass three event-packed days, Nov. 16-18.
In 2013 the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas A&M began offering undergraduate students summer internships to carry out original research in a wide range of areas, including severe weather and forecasting, climate and paleoclimate, atmospheric chemistry and aerosol physics, radiative transfer and remote sensing, and atmospheric dynamics.
Observing the Ocean REU
The Geochemical and Environmental Research Group (GERG) and Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University are proud to announce a new REU program that will focus on "Observing the Ocean: hypoxia, harmful algae, oil spills and ocean acidification." Ten students will be introduced to new ocean observing technologies and will use data from ocean observatories, buoys and time series to investigate the ocean. Students will work with faculty and staff mentors in laboratories and on seagoing projects to acquire the analytical skills for multidisciplinary oceanographic research.
Soltis Center REU
The REU students and faculty mentors will spend 6 weeks at the Soltis Center for Research and Education in central Costa Rica. The Center is located in San Juan de San Isidro de Peñas Blancas, about a two and a half hour drive northwest of San Jose, the capital city of Costa Rica. The facility and property were donated to Texas A&M University by former student Charles William Soltis and his wife Wanda Soltis.
G-Camp for Teachers
G-Camp is a two week camp for 4th - 12th grade science teachers that gives you first-hand experience with the principles of geology in the field, helps you develop new curriculum and virtual fieldtrips for your classroom, and makes learning fun and exciting out of doors. This field experience puts you on the outcrop, on the slope of a volcano, on the footwall of a fault, in a spectacular glacial valley, at the toe of a landslide, and in a pristine flowing stream - to mention just a few of the opportunities of G-Camp.
