With Rutgers' closure due to the novel coronavirus, the Geology Museum has transitioned many of its educational programs to a virtual format. Below is a listing of the current online programs we offer.


"Ask A Geologist" Web Series

Ask A Geologist ImageJoin us bi-monthly on Fridays for these online sessions, where we hope to engage children and answer their questions! During each event, our geologist will first introduce the day's geologic topic and then answer your questions about it! Events are primarily aimed at elementary and middle school aged children, but all ages are welcome to join and learn something new!
