PGI Board members Shane Schmidt and Stephen Brellenthin traveled to Milford Elementary (Milford, IN) to present geology to 3rd graders. Shane and Stephen brought plenty of rock specimens and common tools of the trade for the kids to get a hands-on experience and learn a little about what geologists do. Shane presented a slide show to the class on the geology of Indiana. Stephen also demonstrated the safe way to crack open geodes and a great way to ruin a carpet with a rock hammer.
PGI provides an opportunity for community outreach and volunteering to teach the public the importance of geosciences and the role it plays in the community. If you are interested in helping PGI, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
