North Carolina is a wonderland for geologists.  From sedimentary to volcanic produced rocks, North Carolina has an incredible geologic diverisity.   Working in small groups we will examine typical North Carolina rocks and practice classifying them. Then use these specimens to interpret the importance of different types of rocks and minerals.

Family Science Investigations programs offer families an opportunity to participate together in monthly science classes related to Museum research, including topics in ecology, paleontology, geology and biology. These classes are especially useful for homeschoolers looking for additional reinforcement to curriculum goals, or any family group that simply enjoys learning together!

Program Instructor: Bob Alderink and Colin Brammer, Coordinators for Natural World investigate Lab.
