Ask A Geologist Web Series

Photo of a Child Watching the first 'Ask A Geologist' Event


Our "Ask A Geologist" web series will continue bi-monthly this Fall! Tune into these online sessions, where we hope to engage children and answer their questions! Like all of our events, this virtual event is completely FREE!

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!

Send in your questions ahead of time using this form or post one in the online chat during the presentation!
