GeoTech – Where Earth, Technology, and Exploration Meet
The GeoTech mission is to provide a forum to inspire and motivate educators in grades K-12 to teach about the Earth – its structure, societies, environments, and their interplay, using a wide range of technologies. The unifying theme of the conference is exploration beyond the classroom and instructional technology. The primary goal of the conference is to make a difference in the lives of the students, the community, and enhance the work of all educators at the local, state, and national level. The conference is now in its 27th year.

The 27th Annual GeoTech Conference
The 2014-2015 GeoTech Lecture Series will culminate with our 27th Annual Conference on February 26 – 28, 2015, and highly-decorated National Geographic environmental photographer James Balog will serve as the keynote speaker.
For three decades, James Balog [“BAY-log”] has been a leader in photographing and interpreting the natural environment to reveal the impact of climate change, Mr. Balog founded the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), the most wide-ranging, ground-based, photographic study of glaciers ever conducted. The project is featured in the highly acclaimed documentary, Chasing Ice, which won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, as well as dozens of awards at film festivals worldwide.
Mr. Balog is the author of eight books. ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers was published by Rizzoli in 2012. Among his other titles are Tree: A New Vision of the American Forest (2004) and Survivors: A New Vision of Endangered Wildlife (1990), hailed as a major conceptual breakthrough in environmental photography.
