Faculty, staff and students are actively engaged in outreach activities that promote Earth Sciences in general, and the Department at SFU. Outreach includes annual participation in the Faculty of Science open house, introductory talks to incoming science students and high school students, and community talks.
Since 1998, the Earth Sciences Department has been actively engaged with the public and school groups by hosting in-mall displays, elementary school workshops and a sample lend-out program. Although we have done workshops for all ages (preschool to seniors), by far the most popular program is with the kindergarten to grade 5 age group. Students come to the lab and spend time working through stations that involve them in the hands-on fun of Earth Sciences.
