Rocks4Kids Jr Education Day
Do you like fossils, minerals, crystals, and unusual rocks?  At this event, students in grades 1-8  go to a series of stations where they collect rock  specimens and learn about a variety of topics,  including:  - Pennsylvania minerals and rocks, - Fossils - Optical properties of Minerals - Cleavage of crystals - Fluorescence (glow in the dark) - Cabochon making - Sales table for children with affordable prices And more! There will be demonstrations, games and  interesting facts about rocks and minerals. Students  will receive a properly labeled specimen at each  station and an egg carton for their new collection.   Everyone goes at their own pace to each station in  the order they choose.  Participation is limited to a first come first served  basis so please sign up early!  Advanced payment of  $5.00 for each child will guarantee your reserved  spot for the special event.  Registration is limited so that we may be sure of having enough  specimens for all of the students. Rocks4Kids Day is fun and rewarding for students in grades 1-8 and their parents. Only the  student pays to register. They will learn about minerals, crystals, and fossils at a series of  stations and the student will receive samples to begin their own rock collection. It will take  about two hours to complete the stations. Sign up for your preferred start time so that we can  spread the crowd out through the day.
