The Department of Geology and Environmental Science provides opportunities for K-12 students, the public community, and contributes their expertise to K-12 environmental science curriculum reform. Most notably, the department is home to the JMU Mineral Museumdestination for serious collectors, rockhounds and students of all ages. 

Other Examples
  • Hosting a pop-up style exhibit that provides numerous hands-on experiences for all ages to learn about the science of ocean drilling, past climates, plate tectonics, and microbial life deep beneath the seafloor.
  • Working with others across the country on developing best-practices curriculum in climate change education
  • Collaborating with other institutions on developing and understanding inclusive geoscience field experiences for students with mobility disabilities.
  • Developing and teaching hands-on life lessons to students and other community members visiting campus including JMU's madiSTEM conference designed for girls and STEM Center-hosted school field trips.
