An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until January 30, 2018
THIS PROGRAM IS FULL.
Pick up any rock and look closely. It is made of minerals–naturally occurring solids with definite chemical composition.
Geologist Bruce Baty will introduce you to a number of amazing rock-forming and ore minerals during this four-part series. Discover their properties and local distribution. Experiment with our large collection of mineral specimens. Learn how to identify minerals based on a set of clues: crystal shape, hardness, streak, specific gravity, fracture, and luster.
The series includes lectures and hands-on activities to best engage your geological interest. Amaze yourself, your family and friends as you find minerals wherever you go!
Dates: January 9, 16, 23, & 30
