The Geoscience Academy is located at Olathe North High School.
Who We Are
Earth, Ocean, Space & the Environment.
Students in the Geoscience Academy have a desire to study the earth and its processes. They engage in exploration of the world of Geoscience by engaging in authentic learning experiences, working with industry standard research equipment and scientific tools. A sense of community is developed through their collaborative experiences with other like-minded individuals. The study of Geoscience addresses critical issues such as water and mineral resources; stewardship of the environment, along with studies in meteorology, oceanography, marine biology, paleontology, and more.
