To make your NCLI Day celebration all it can be, enlist the help of colleagues and partners in your school system and wider community. Help won’t be hard to find when others begin to understand the effort’s importance — and its potential benefits.
As someone who is deeply engaged in Earth science, you know how vital the geosciences are to living in today’s world. And your neighbors receive daily reminders in the form of news headlines about natural disasters, energy crises, technological advances, employment needs, and global climate controversies. With your exceptional geoscientific expertise and ties to the community, you’re in a perfect position to point out the importance of Earth science. (See Why Earth Science?.)
More immediately, NCLI Day can bring unique benefits to your school community. This event, as noted above, can excite young people by shaking up their classroom routines and leading them into uncharted territory. Additionally, NCLI Day can show the community a new side of your school, highlighting the nontraditional educational approaches you’re undertaking to provide students with high-quality, hands-on experiences in Earth science education.
Whom should you include on your team? Some recommendations:
Enlisting partners is a great way to share the workload. Many of the recommendations above come from AGI’s The Pulse of Earth Science: An Advocacy Guide. Feel free to consult this handy resource in maximizing your efforts to garner support for NCLI Day and your other Earth science efforts.
