Exploration Station

We regret to inform you that the 2016 Fall Meeting Exploration Station event has been canceled. Due to unexpected resource and space constraints, it was determined that AGU would not be able to support this event in a manner that ensured a successful and positive experience for our attendees or our scientists who share their science with the public. Given AGU’s commitment to excellence – something we share with all of our scientist exhibitors – we could not reasonably move forward with the event knowing that it could not meet the high level of service our attendees have come to expect over the last 7 years. Please know that we are deeply disappointed to have to make this decision, and that we thank you for your dedication and commitment to Exploration Station, and to educating the public about the wonder and excitement of science. Please contact exploration-station@agu.org with questions.

2015 AGU Fall Meeting. Exploration StationExploration Station is a program of activities that gives the public and AGU Earth and space scientists who are education/outreach professionals a chance to interact in San Francisco.  At Exploration Station, we offer opportunities for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to complete merit requirements and a special Kids’ Zone for our youngest visitors, featuring stomp rockets and arts & crafts activities. Read about Exploration Station in our Eos article.

This event is four hours long, free, and open to the public. Participants make their way through about 30 exhibits offering a variety of easy, family friendly, hands-on activities and have an opportunity to interact one-on-one with scientists, engineers, and education specialists.
