What is the Florida Geology Education Video Project ?

It's...

  • a video titled FLORIDA'S GEOLOGY UNEARTHED
  • an Educators Guide
  • additional resource materials
  • been developed with input from environmental educators
  • and professional geologists

Because... holistic environmental education requires an understanding of geology and there are few comprehensive Florida geology education resources available.

Our goal... is to use enthusiastic, contemporary video editing, music and graphics in order to:
  • Demonstrate why geology is important regarding demands due to Florida's population growth
  • Describe Florida's unique geologic history, how it relates to geologic processes and hazards, and how it has shaped the land surface of present-day Florida
  • Establish the importance of geology to the understanding of Florida's ecosystems
  • Compliment existing Florida Department of Education Sunshine State Standards
  • Instill personal awareness and responsibility for Florida's renewable and non-renewable solid-earth resources
