Kentucky Geological Survey continues tradition of celebrating Earth Science Week
KGS is hosting the 21st annual open house in celebration of Earth Science Week October 11-17. Due to the pandemic, KGS will host a virtual event in place of the in-person open house held the past 20 years.
Check out our Earth Science Week web page with short videos about geology and geologists; information about rocks, minerals, and fossils; and links to home-based science activities on our website. Featured videos include videos showing how geologists map from KGS, a video of a volcano demonstration from UK’s Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and a video about rare earth extraction from UK’s Dept. of Mining Engineering.
On Friday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT (UTC-4:00), we are having a live Q&A with KGS researchers Steve Greb, Matt Crawford, and Sarah Arpin. If you want to participate in the live session, please sign up by 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 15th via google forms and we will email you the zoom link shortly before the event.
