A variety of materials have been produced within the geoscience department by faculty, staff, students and volunteers. These include field trip guides, lab activities, career resource materials, local geoscience content and related instruction materials.

The Idaho Out-of-School Network’s (ION) mission is to ensure Idaho’s youth have access to high quality out-of-school (OST) programs.
The research on OST programs reveals that youth consistently enrolled in quality programs perform better academically, have better school attendance, adapt better socially, are more likely to graduate from high school and go-on to higher learning. Research also reveals that they are less likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors that may lead to crime, substance abuse or teen parenthood. New studies are showing too that OST programs are helping close the achievement gap of students across income levels. ION is the only program of its kind in Idaho, though all 50 states have launched similar programs.
ION does not directly offer out-of-school programs; the focus is to advocate and promote the benefits of out-of-school programming, help connect families and youth to a program and support providers with resources and training to enrich and expand their programming and services.
