LEWISBURG, Pa. — The geology department at Bucknell University will host an open house on Saturday, March 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the O'Leary Center.
The open house will have many activities geared toward students in elementary and middle school as well as a few for high school students. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Activities will include interactive displays of rocks, minerals and fossils and will focus on examining how geology influences daily life.
Exhibits, activities and experiments
"There will be exhibits, activities and experiments in each of our teaching spaces on the first and second floors of the building, and major analytical instruments, including a scanning electron microscope, will be in use," said Chris Daniel, associate professor of geology at Bucknell.
One entire room will be dedicated to a display of fluorescent materials. Geology faculty, staff and students will be on hand to answer questions.
"If you have a few rocks, minerals or fossils that you would like to be identified, bring them and a geologist will identify them for you," said Daniel.
The O'Leary Center for Geology and Psychology is on Seventh Street. For more information, call 570-577-1382.
