Special Saturday Workshop in September!

Everyone  should reserve the morning of September 21, 2013 on their caledar. There will be a special workshop on the physical properties of minerals and how to determine specific gravity of minerals.  It will be held at the Western Museum of Mining and Industry.  Exact details will be coming soon.  For now, reserve the date.  We may have a picnic after the workshop and a short tour of the museum.
This will be a very important workshop to attend. This is also basic to being successful as a rock hound and doing well in the Science Olympiad.



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.
