About Us

The TeXas Earth and Space Science Revolution (TXESS Revolution) is a teacher professional development program for teachers in support of Earth and Space Science. This capstone course is an option for the 4th year of science required to graduate under the recommended high school plan.

The TXESS Revolution Project, supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, targets minority and minority-serving teachers. We are working in collaboration with the Texas Regional Collaboratives for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching, and participants in GeoForce Texas to recruit and support teachers, but all Texas teachers are welcome.

The innovative program is offered by UT's Jackson School of Geosciences and Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering, TERC, a not-for-profit company in Massachusetts with 30 years experience in designing science curriculum, and the Texas Regional Collboratives of Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching.

Information about application, scheduling, requirements, and expectations are listed under the Application tab above.

Each TXESS Revolution Professional Development Academy (PDAs) last two-and-a-half days (24 hours of SBEC credit). Teachers participate in rigourous, data-driven learning activities. Field trips, guest lectures, and other special programs are integrated into the training.
