ROCKS AND MINERALS IN YOUR CLASSROOM

We partner with educators, librarians, PTA's and camp directors to offer hands-on, geology programs for children. Participants of all ages get to interact with a variety of rocks and minerals as we dig into earth science concepts that are fun and promote critical thinking.  Encouraging play, discovery, and the process of science, we explore the awesome forces that shape our natural world. 

Topics can be tailored to bridge concepts you may be learning in the classroom. Educational programs are available for pre-k and elementary students.  Specialty tween and family workshops are also available upon request.
