Every year, PGI joins the Indiana State Museum in celebrating geoscience! The museum hosts an annual rock, mineral, fossil and jewelry show and invites local organizations to provide hands-on geoscience activities for the attendees. PGI hosts a display and activity area with local rock cores, a groundwater contamination model and local fossils. Geologists and geoscientists volunteer to answer questions on what do geologists actually do and how knowledge of geology is imperative for everything from infrastructure to environmental protection.
The event is held annually in February. Check the Indiana State Museum for event details (indianamuseum.org).
