The University of Tennessee GK-12 Earth Project
Funded by the National Science Foundation

Professional Presentations

The personnel associated with the GK-12 Earth Project have been very successful at presenting and highlighting this project at several national meetings, including the annual meetings of the Association of American Geographers (AAG) and the Geological Society of America (GSA). Presentations have been given by principal investigators and GK-12 Fellows alike. Below, we provide links to these presentations, and will continue to post these as we continue to highlight our project at scientific and educational meetings.
