El Paso Area Education and Outreach Activities
The Earth, Environmental and Resource Sciences Department at The University of Texas at El Paso strives to improve the understanding of and interest in the geological sciences by the general public through the development and implementation of various programs in our El Paso community and in our local public schools. Our Chihuahuan Desert backyard is an excellent large-scale laboratory readily available for the teaching and learning of geological concepts.
