About Core Kids

Core Kids was founded by WMU scientists to help bridge the gap between Earth scientists and the public.  The program helps students, teachers and the public to understand more about Earth, its processes and its natural resources.

If you are a geoscientist wondering whether outreach is important, or a teacher looking for evidence to convince your school board that Earth Science should be included in your curriculum, please view and download our presentation titled Why Support Geoscience Education?

To educate the public we visit K-12 classrooms and other groups in SW Michigan, host field trips to the Michigan Geological Repository for Research and Education (MGRRE) on the WMU campus and make many of our presentations for elementary, middle school and high school students.
