More Rocks in Your Head

Today the Oklahoma Geological Foundation and Oklahoma Mineral and Gem Society hosted another of their "More Rocks in Your Head" workshops for Oklahoma public school teachers with the goal of helping teachers incorporate earth science into their curriculum.

We were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend and interact with the teachers.  Devin gave a brief presentation about our new project "Every Day Earth" and we got some great feedback.

The OGF also donated two of their Rock, Mineral and Fossil Kits as prizes for the teachers.  The workshop instructor, Edmond public school teacher Dick Opalka, and Devin pulled out some names for the lucky winners.

Congratulations to the two teachers who won!  Devin also gave a way a few copies of his book, "My Book of Rocks and Minerals."  Hopefully the materials and knowledge passed along will directly benefit the next generation of earth scientists!
