Dear Colleague,I am writing because you are a K-12 educator or you work with K-12 educators, and we hope that you will help us get the word out about our upcoming workshop for Earth and space science teachers. The Geophysical Information for Teachers (GIFT) Workshop allows science teachers to hear about the latest geoscience research from the scientists making the discoveries, explore new classroom resources for their students, and visit exhibits and technical sessions of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting (an annual gathering of over 22,000 Earth and space scientists in San Francisco) for free. AGU collaborates with the National Earth Science Teachers’ Association (NESTA) to run GIFT workshops at Fall Meeting.Thank you for your time,Bethany AdamecPlease share the information below with your K-12 educator contacts:Registration for the 2013 GIFT workshop is now open.
