The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) was established in 1938 to foster improvement in the teaching of earth sciences at all levels of formal and informal instruction, to emphasize the cultural significance of the earth sciences, and to disseminate knowledge in this field to the general public.

NAGT organizes the technical program in geoscience education at every GSA Annual Meeting, and in this context also sponsors numerous technical sessions, workshops, and field trips. The organization also fosters advances in the teaching and learning of geoscience by means of scholarship aid to summer field-camp students, professional workshops for geoscience faculty, its Distinguished Speaker Series, and the Journal of Geoscience Education and through its partnership with the National Association for Black Geologists and Geophysicists.

In 2003 the Central Section of the NAGT was reorganized to include the former Central and East-Central Sections.
