Students and Community

Many classes utilize the museum, not just in geology, but in the other sciences, humanities and education.

The Answersphere is a student tutoring service.

Exhibits related to Introductory Geology classes include:

  • minerals, igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rock cases
  • fossil cases
  • digital earthquake exhibit
  • other, similar topics

Introductory Geology labs have museum field trip assignments. [PDF; 216KB]
