Colburn Earth Science Museum

Monday, June 1st 2015 - All Day

This year we are teaming up with organizations in our community to produce our first annual LEGO contest. We are taking applicants now and we will display all of the winners in our museum throughout the summer months. We are also teaming up with Hedrick Industries (the Grove Stone Quarry) to create a Field Day for all geologists big and small. The Quarry is giving us exclusive access to their grounds and educational site to teach several Earth science related topics to the public. Both of these events have a $10 fee and do include registration.

You can find all of these events and specific details on our website event calendar.
