Such learning activities are a regular practice at every AOGS Annual Meeting with co-organizer roles played out by geoscience faculty, local and abroad.

School Talks/Workshops/Public Lectures
These can be hosted at school campus or the venue where the AOGS annual meeting is being held. The speakers are always volunteer experts in their fields and mostly presenters attending the annual meeting.
