Geoscience Student Clubs and Organizations
The Geoscience Club is a fun student-run club that participates in phenomenal field trips, awesome educational outreach efforts, and of course, our own exciting events! The club is open to all students who are interested in the earth sciences and want to make a difference in the community while creating long-lasting friendships. New majors fit in very easily and find the department a welcoming and supportive place to grow and learn.
Our activities will vary from one semester to another, depending on the interest of the students and needs of the community. Recent club activities include:
- Hikes, and more hikes
- Movie night on 25th street
- WSU 4th grade rock box project
- Fall break at Yellowstone
- Private Kennecott Copper Mine tour
- Behind the scenes tour of the National History Museum of Utah
- WSU Shake Up
Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE) is the national honor/pre-professional society for students in the geosciences.
- collecting and distributing rock samples to local elementary schools
- being lead coordinators for WSU ShakeUp events
- running summer "Science Hiking" programs in conjuction with Weber Pathways
- mentoring International Baccalaureate (IB) students in local high schools who are interested in the geosciences
- running monthly "Science Saturday" events for school age children
- organizing extracurricular fieldtrips and excursions in cooperation with the Geosciences Club.
The WSU Student Chapter of NSTA was established by and for science-teaching majors in the College of Science, but we recognize that you don’t have to be a high school physics teacher or university professor to be involved in teaching science to the rising generation.
We want to provide resources and opportunities for anyone who wants to be involved in science outreach and education.
We want to get students involved in teaching and outreach because we believe that there is no better way to learn!
We’re working on programs like Science in the Schools during the school year and Science in the Parks during the summer to get future teachers out in the field and working with some hands-on scientific demonstrations.
Not only does this help you with volunteer hours and getting you actively involved in the community, but it gives you valuable resources that you can use in your classroom.
We’re planning on taking some fun field trips and hikes -- and we’re even working on social events so you can mingle with your peers throughout the semester.
