Earthworks with Mad Science

April 20, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Young scientists dig-in to Earth science! Earth’s layers are introduced with a spotlight on its outer rocky layer. We check out three rock samples to find out how they were made and where they were formed, and we inspect minerals with an ultraviolet light to see them fluoresce. Then we rock out with our model of the moving plates that cause bends and breaks in the Earth’s solid rock layer, resulting in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions! Ages 5-12.
