Ector County Independent School District students interested in geology are now able to enroll in a new dual-credit program in partnership with the University of Texas Permian Basin.

In a collaborative effort between the ECISD Innovation Department and UTPB Geoscience Program Chair Michael Zavada, students will have the opportunity to explore, conduct real hands-on research, curate specimens, take on an internship and more.

Through a generous Chevron donation, scholarships have been made available.

Classes will begin August 12.
