Geothermal for Teachers
As an educational institution, the SMU Geothermal Laboratory is pleased to make the information on this website available for use by teachers and students. In addition to the 'fun facts', classroom project ideas, papers and online access to our temperature maps, we encourage you to explore some of the available links:
1. The Geothermal Education Office is a good starting point for a variety of educational interests with links to many other websites and trade organizations.
2. For those more interested in 'direct use', such as home use geothermal heat pumps, the Geo-Heat Center is an excellent resource.
3. You can learn more about the U.S. Department of Energy funded research by visiting the DOE's Geothermal Energy Program website.
4. Google.org, the philanthropic arm of Google.com, contains information on their geothermal initiatives, with particular focus on Enhanced Geothermal Systems. You can learn more by visiting their EGS Frequently Asked Questions page.
The SMU Geothermal Laboratory is part of the Huffington Department of Earth Sciences at Southern Methodist University. To learn more about the department's faculty and research, visit http://smu.edu/earthsciences/.
