Crushed stone association offers workshop on Kentucky’s rocks, minerals


The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association (KyCSA) will hold its annual teachers’ workshop June 18-19 at the Georgetown College Leadership and Conference Center in Georgetown.

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, tour of an underground limestone quarry and Lexington’s McConnell Springs, have the opportunity to drive construction equipment and be able to take rocks, mineral materials and supplies back to their classrooms.
