Virtual Geoscientist in the Classroom
Connect your classroom with a real-life geoscientist! In this free workshop, MineralsEd Volunteer Geoscientists virtually visit classrooms to present on a geoscience topic of the educator’s choice, followed by a Q&A session. This is a great opportunity for classes learning about Earth Science, rocks and minerals, or careers to get first-hand knowledge from a professional geoscientist. Our volunteers are passionate and have a diverse set of knowledge and experiences. Book your geoscientist today!
