UC to host free, public geoscience events

March 30, 2022

Current college students, high school students interested in geosciences, and families with young children who like fossils can all attend and participate in two free and public geoscience events this April.     The events, planned and hosted by the University of Cincinnati and other local universities, will include a virtual open house with geoscience professionals and two outdoor walks designed to provide guests a hands-on learning experience.    Now that the weather is finally warming up, there is no better time to get out and learn alongside professional geologists and other geology aficionados.    Meant to work in tandem with the joint North-Central and Southeastern Geological Society of America 2022 Section Meeting in Cincinnati from April 7 to 9, the events are free to the public and intended to bring attention to geoscience.
