The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association will hold its annual teachers’ workshop, “Rocks and Minerals in Modern Society,” June 21-22 at Georgetown College.
The free workshop is designed for science teachers in grades 3-12, but is also open to other teachers who would like to learn more about rocks and minerals. The workshop will focus on the identification, economic value and uses of a variety of rocks and earth materials in modern society.
Participants will learn about Kentucky’s geology, take a tour of an underground limestone quarry, have the opportunity to drive construction equipment and be able to take rocks and mineral materials back to their classrooms, as well as a large periodic table.
