CSMS Pebble Pups Start 2011-2012 Academic Year Program
The CSMS Pebble Pup program has started the 2011-2012 year with great success. The regular meetings, on the third Thursdays of each month, now start at 5:30 pm. This new format combines the Pebble Pups and the juniors—so that they work together on projects. Tonight everyone worked on an assignment of weighing and working with various kinds of rocks. Everyone enjoyed baked cookies and brownies and had time to feast, share rock stories, and have fun. Deerheart clam fossils, from a canyon near Austin, Texas, were provided to each Pebble Pup for their collection.
Welcome! This is the gateway to adventure and discovery
Through this blog pebble pups and junior members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society can access their lessons, work on assignments and projects, and receive details about field trips in the Pikes Peak Region. This Internet program is also suitable for young people who are interested in Earth science but do not live near a rock club or gem and mineral society or for young people anywhere who want a deeper dive into these topics. The only requirement is that all participants must be members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and must fill out the CSMS membership form (under important websites) and send their registration and membership fee in. Steven Veatch is the senior instructor and will need an email from you with your name, address, phone number, and permission from your parents to participate in this program.
