More! Rocks In Your Head

More! Rocks in Your Head earth science workshop was presented to 39 middle school teachers at Region 4 Education Service Center. Region 4 services all 53 school districts in the greater Houston area. These teachers are also mentor teachers with the Texas Regional Collaborative in Science. The workshop, which enhances their earth science background and provides projects with materials, was jointly funded by the AAPG Foundation, Region 4 and the Houston Geological Society. Two more of these funded workshops are scheduled for 2012.
