Come in and learn about Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils from Dr. Yunker of the Oklahoma Geological Survey. Kids get to explore the samples, ask questions, make observations, and will be provided with a Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Kit. The kits are generously provided by the Oklahoma Geological Foundation whose mission is to further geoscience education efforts within Oklahoma. Learn about the world of rocks, minerals, fossils, and the world of geoscience.
