In 1996, the Education Committee of the Kentucky Geological Survey, in conjunction with the Kentucky Society of Professional Geologists, established the Earth Science Education Network (ESEN). Originally, the network provided a group of geologists who served as resource persons for teachers. In the fall of 1996, ESEN was expanded to provide resources from around the globe using the World Wide Web. In order to keep the network useful, we encourage suggestions from educators. If you have a suggestion, send a message by e-mail to email@example.com, or phone a member of the Earth Science Education Committee of the Kentucky Geological Survey at (859) 257-5500, or write to the Earth Science Education Committee, Kentucky Geological Survey, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40506-0107.
