Join the Expert: Geology

  • Wednesday, December 19, 2018
  • 10:00am - 11:30am

This class will begin in the Curiosity Classrooms where we’ll learn some basics about rocks, perform mineral tests, and investigate the different rock types.  The second half of the class will be spent behind-the-scenes on a tour of the Museum’s Geology Collection and Geology & Petrology Research Lab led by a Museum Research and Collections staff member.  In this special “Join the Expert” series, students will have the opportunity to engage with our resident experts and enjoy special access to normally restricted areas of the Museum.
