Preparing tomorrow's citizens


Welcome to our new home online

This is just a start. We are hoping to add resources here that anyone can use in teaching about Earth systems science.  Please join us, and help us build a strong community to help Virginia's next citizens become informed and aware about Earth. 

About Us


Virginia needs a community of science educators to help teach tomorrow's citizens about our planet. 


We welcome educators of any kind - K-12, public, private, homeschool, informal, museum, hobbyists, and more. If you teach anyone any part of the many geosciences, we welcome your participation!


The VA Earth Science Teacher's Association (VESTA) strives to be a community where we can promote and support those who are teaching science. We have big plans for our members, so join us now!
