 Strike it big! Pan for gold, create geodes, and toss boulders. 3-11 YRS. Registration required.

Calling all prospectors, and rock hounds! Learn how to pan for gold just like miners from the mid-1800s without all the fuss of wading through streambeds and blasting through bedrock. You may strike it rich! This hands-on science program will demonstrate simple gold panning techniques, and provide an introduction to geosciences.

Children will have the opportunity to sift through sand in search of "pay dirt", form shark tooth geodes out of salt dough and real shark's teeth, and compete in the Stone Age Olympics.
