Rocks Rock

The official Rocks Rock description.

In Spring, 2002, the Western Kentucky University Campus Girl Scout group in conjunction with the Geology and Geography clubs ran a Rocks Rock badge workshop. The workshop ran for one afternoon and consisted of four stations that the girls rotated through. We had approximately 60 girls present. The activities chosen for the day were:

The day started with a Geology professor (myself) giving a talk about possible careers in geology, along with the kinds of activities that each type of geoscientist did. The girls were then broken into groups and went through the four stations.

The four stations chosen were:

  1. Rock and Minerals
  2. Soils
  3. Fossils
  4. Local area topography

Pictures of the four activities can be found in part I and II.
