Education and outreach focuses on providing training, educational materials and short courses to scientists using geodesy, to undergraduate and secondary education faculty, undergraduate and grades 6-12 students, and the public.
UNAVCO Short Courses are offered to increase the capacity of the scientific community to process, analyze, and interpret geodetic data. For undergraduate and secondary education faculty, UNAVCO Educational Workshops promote a broader understanding of the applications of geodesy to Earth science and present the educational materials available for teaching. Educational materials include activities and lab exercises for secondary education (grades 6 - 12) and undergraduate courses, and online museum displays. Data investigation tools help learners visualize abstract concepts, and illustrate various Earth science processes. These tools include the Jules Verne Voyager Jr. and EarthScope Voyager Jr. Mapping Tools the Data for Educators< page, and the UNAVCO Velocity Viewer.
The Research Experience in the Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS) program, run by UNAVCO, is an undergraduate-to-graduate bridge internship program designed to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities in the Earth sciences.
