ROCKS AND MINERALS IN THE CLASSROOM  - THE FIELD TRIP COMES TO YOU!

Rock Solid Science engages children through inquiry and exploration. Utilizing wonder, discovery, and the process of science, we encourage children to explore their natural world by getting hands-on with interesting rocks, and concepts that promote questioning, cooperation and critical thinking. 

We partner with educators, librarians, PTA's and camp directors to offer fun, learning experiences for children, while providing insight into the breadth of Earth Science as a subject. There are many possibilities and we are happy to discuss collaborations!  Geoscience career prospects are really good at the moment, and we discuss science careers in all our workshops.
