Garret Romaine, Executive Director of the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals, leads “Geology Rocks!,” a Second Saturday Science set for 10:30 a.m. on March 14 at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
Romaine, the author of several geology-related books including “Geology Lab for Kids” and “Modern Rockhounding & Prospecting Handbook,” leads this program that offers hands-on exploration of various rock specimens and a demonstration of gold panning.
The Second Saturday Science series—for ages 7-12 — is designed to create “fun, hands-on opportunities for children to explore concepts related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).”
Programs see youths unearth and identify dinosaur bones, predict hurricanes and tornadoes, explore mines, discover hidden cities, work with water quality and more, promoting earth science career paths for students.
This program is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library.
