About Us

Established in 1991; the GED fosters the active participation of GSA members in all aspects of earth-science education. The Division complements and expands on the contributions of GSA’s Education & Outreach group, the National Earth Science Teachers Association (NESTA), the National Association of Geology Teachers (NAGT), the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), and other similar organizations. It sponsors the Biggs Earth Science Teaching Award and a Distinguished Service Award.
