National Events

Geo-CVD will be held in person from September 15-16, 2022.
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), in collaboration with many other geoscience societies, invites geoscientists to participate in the annual Geoscience Congressional Visits Days (GEO-CVD). By uniting geoscience researchers, professionals, students, educators, engineers, and executives in Washington D.C., GEO-CVD increases the visibility of and support for the geosciences in Congress. Participants in GEO-CVD have an opportunity to meet with members of their state’s congressional delegation and staff from congressional committees that have jurisdiction over geoscience issues!
Past Expo Date: X-STEM San Diego (April 19, 2022)
Next Expo Date: X-STEM All Access (new episodes to be released throughout 2022) | X-STEM Northern Virginia (October 26, 2022) | X-STEM Phoenix (December 8, 2022)
*Status of Events Pending COVID-19
The mission of the USA Science & Engineering Festival is to stimulate and sustain the interest of our nation’s youth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by producing and presenting compelling, exciting, and educational STEM events and programs! For more information on all Festival events and how you can get involved, visit:

Individuals and classrooms are invited to join the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) GeoMag Data Challenge! In this live event, CIRES will teach you how to collect data on the intensity of Earth's magnetic field using only your phone and the CrowdMag app. Your contributions will help scientists understand changes in Earth's magnetic field that will lead to improvements in navigation and help to protect our communication systems and electric grid from space weather.
Individuals or entire classrooms are invited to participate! Complete your data passport to be entered into a raffle for stickers, posters, and other prizes.
Date and Time: Thursday, October 13, 2022 from 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM MDT
NASA DEVELOP addresses environmental and public policy issues through interdisciplinary research projects conducted by diverse teams of participants. Join in learning how you can apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to support informed decision-making and address community concerns around the globe. This event will highlight the applications of Earth observations and include an 'About NASA DEVELOP' presentation along with information about how current students, recent graduates, and early- or transitioning-career professionals can apply for summer 2023 opportunities. Following the presentation, there will be a virtual networking social allowing attendees to interact with current NASA DEVELOP Fellows and members of the National Program Office. Space is limited to the first 200.
Date and Time: October 13, 2022 | 2PM ET
