The monthly Earth Science Week Update e-newsletter reaches some 6,500 subscribers. The electronic newsletter was one of the program components rated most highly by participants.
Several hundred people nationwide entered Earth Science Week’s Visual Arts, Essay and Photography Contests in 2010. The contests encouraged participants to become involved in the celebration by exploring academic and artistic applications of Earth science.
Each year, more and more people are introduced to Earth Science Week by reading or watching a news story in the media. In 2010, a documented 46 million people learned about the program through promotions, education, the Internet, and print and television media coverage. The Earth Science Week 2010 poster, including a geoscience learning activity, was inserted into several magazines, including NSTA Reports and the National Earth Science Teachers Association's, The Earth Scientist. In 2010, articles about Earth Science Week were published in Wired and The Boston Globe. NBC and CBS have also covered Earth Science Week recently.
