 previous story | next story

Robert Ridky, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Education Coordinator, visited the USGS St. Petersburg Science Center in St. Petersburg, FL, on March 17 to share his ideas about USGS research and education in a presentation titled "Integrating Education and Research at USGS: Need, Purposes, and Approach." He highlighted the increasing national need for public understanding of Earth science and technology at a time when statistics show a decrease in student enrollment in Earth-science fields. Nearly all Federal agencies have recommended increased spending on Earth-science education.

Ridky met with Andrew Stone, director of the American Ground Water Trust (AGWT); Lisa Robbins, director of the USGS center in St. Petersburg; and Ann Tihansky, USGS hydrologist, to exchange ideas, goals, and visions for a newly established partnership between the USGS and the AGWT (see "USGS and the American Ground Water Trust Expand Teacher Institute Program" in this issue's Outreach section).
