2013 Earth Science Update Conference - Hands-on Science for Teachers

This year's Earth Science Update Conference has concluded following a day of information, curriculum development ideas and rock collecting.  UNI faculty, Iowa Geological and Water Survey staff and Basic Materials Corporation staff provided an update on the latest information about the geology and geological resources available to instructors.  A special trip to the local Steinbron Quarry capped off the day.  This year's conference, on April 26, 2013, was supported through the generosity of the Iowa Limestone Producers Association and Basic Materials Corporation, who manages the Steinbron Quarry.
