CoreKids helps students, teachers and the public to understand more about Earth, its processes and its natural resources.
For visitors familiar with our classroom visits and field trips of the past, we are pleased to report that these services will be available during the 2012/2013 school year. Please see below for more about CoreKids past activities. (click here)
For information on helping to fund CoreKids, please contact Jeffrey Barney, WMU Department of Geosciences.
Dear Teachers and Students,
If you are a geoscientist wondering whether outreach is important, or a teacher looking for evidence to convince your school board that Earth Science should be included in your curriculum, please view and download our presentation titled Why Support Geoscience Education?
Between 2007 and the spring of 2011, CoreKids staff interacted directly with over 10,000 of Michigan's K-12 students and teachers. The CoreKids program, including development of the resources on this website were made available by major funding from the US Department of Energy (2007-2008), DTE Energy Foundation (2008-2013). We thank this sponsor for allowing us to visit so many students and teachers.
