June 21-27, 2020

Your GeoX experience on the Texas A&M campus will be the perfect introduction to the geosciences, Aggieland, and the Aggie Network – the strongest network of students and former students in the country. 

What will it cost? Nothing.

We will provide room, meals, and program supplies. Our sponsors, BP and the College of Geosciences, fully fund this summer program. Graduate and upper-division students, many who were GeoX participants themselves, will be available 24/7 to supervise, advise, and guide you during your stay.

We have a mix of classroom, campus, and field visits planned, including:

  • Examining and studying fossils
  • Visiting a Fortune 500 company
  • Launching a weather balloon
  • Exploring the geoscience of Mars
  • Seeing the instruments used to explore the deep ocean
  • Using GPS to guide the way during a scavenger hunt
  • Attending an admissions information session
  • Discussing career options with industry leaders and College of Geosciences faculty
