The 7th Annual Earth Science for Society Exhibition

Who We Are
The Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG) Foundation is excited to be organizing the Earth Science for Society (ESfS) exhibition on March 19-21, 2017 at the Big Four Building, Stampede Park. The ESfS organizing committee members are geoscience volunteers.
What We Do
This is a free, family-friendly event and you are all invited to visit our four themed pavilions including Energy for Us, Resources and You, One Dynamic Earth and Our Future! ESfS showcases hands-on, interactive exhibits demonstrating the importance of the Earth Sciences in our everyday lives. During the event, geoscience volunteers actively guide youth groups and junior high school students through the exhibits, providing opportunities to learn about Earth Sciences and about potential career opportunities.
The Earth Science for Society exhibition will inspire an understanding of Earth Science which is fundamental to public appreciation of responsible consumption, resource management, natural hazards, climate science, and environmental issues.
Knowledge of Earth Science is crucial for responsible collaboration by geoscientists, governments, and companies to find and develop resources for the products and infrastructure that we use in our daily lives.
Increased science literacy is essential for the students of today as they are the decision-makers of tomorrow and the future caretakers of the Earth.
The Purpose of the Event
- To expose students and the public to various aspects of Earth Science in a fun, educational and interactive way.
- To inform students about education and career options.
- To demonstrate how Earth Science plays a critical role in our society.
- To make the connection between responsible resource development and the things we depend on every day.
