  • PSI offers professional development workshops for elementary and middle-school teachers during the school year to provide in-depth knowledge of fundamental concepts in astronomy, geology, and planetary science. These workshops have been implemented within the Tucson Unified School District and their success has spawned similar workshops in other states.

Workshops involve the use of materials to provide teachers and students with a tangible sense of geoscience research and the scientific process.

  • Establishment of children's programs with local organizations such as the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum and the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona that focus on topics in earth and planetary science.
