A Great Suggestion for Young Writers
Most of our Pebble Pups and Juniors are very accomplished writers. They have won first place awards in science writing from the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies and awards from the Rocky Mountain Federation of Mineralogical Societies. Several of our youth's research papers were published in newspapers and magazines. Several of our young members are even writing Earth science poetry. Writing is not easy, and the first part is the hardest, picking up a pencil and putting it to a tablet.
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.
