EPO Activity: Sacramento Science Center: Meet a Scientist Day

Project Progress

In collaboration with the Sacramento Science Center, team member Christy Grettenberger developed a table top activity to teach about how scientists detect biomarkers in the rock record. Approximately 125 people participated in the activity. It was primarily aimed at children 5-10, but there was active participation from children as young as 2 and grandparents.
