Geosciences Exploration Summer Program

Interested in GeoX? Contact us!

The Geosciences Exploration Summer Program, GeoX, provides students with non-stop presentations, workshops, and tours, and an up-close introcution to Aggieland

Texas A&M faculty, student counselors, and staff help give high school participants the ability to witness top-notch geoscientists researching every aspect of our environment – from the atmosphere to the ocean seafloor. 

Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the geosciences. Led by Texas A&M faculty experts, GeoX presentations cover everything from the Arctic to the Antarctic, into the trenches of the Pacific Ocean, even to learning about rovers on Mars, from launching a weather balloon, to talking to a paleontologist.

High schoolers learn the connection of the environment to causes, mitigation strategies, and scientific patterns associated with public health crises. 

The GeoX experience is 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.
