In this workshop, students explore the different types of rocks and how they form over geologic time. Working as a team, students identify various rocks and minerals through hands-on observations and experiments. For a finale, they figure out how a particular rock formation has changed over millions of years.

Fee: $375 for 1 session, $100 for additional same-day sessions. Travel fees may apply.
