Stories in Stone

Stories in Stone

Exhibit Workshop

Get hands on with rocks, minerals and fossils and discover the Earth Systems that shaped our local geology. From earthquakes to erosion, weathering, deposition and tectonic plate  movements, get up close and hands-on with the how the ground beneath our feet has changed over time. Gain a deep understanding of the rock cycle as we uncover the "stories" behind how rocks were formed.

Add to your students' experience by pairing this program with Plates in Motion in our Science on a Sphere exhibition.
