The outreach effort at the Earth Institute recognizes and serves the needs of teachers in our communities. Our programs are uniquely designed to assist science teachers, offering new methodologies in science teaching, up-to-the-minute coursework and hands-on training at our research facilities. In addition to providing stimulating programs for teachers, the Earth Institute also seeks to enhance the education of professionals who are engaged in, or who seek, careers in Earth and environment-related fields. The Earth Institute is continually developing its continuing education courses and encourages you to return to this site often to check for information on new offerings.
