Education Outreach

For any Outreach questions, please contact Chloe Danos.

Museum of Geology Guided Tours

Guided Tours are available for groups. Please call (435-797-1273) or email (geo@usu.edu) to arrange tours at least one week in advance. We will try to accommodate your visit, but we must work with the schedules of our student volunteers. When you call, let us know if there is a particular topic (e.g. minerals, dinosaurs, local geology) that you would like to have emphasized. There is also a scavenger hunt option available.

Teaching Kits

The Department of Geosciences has kits of rocks, minerals, and fossils that can be loaned to local schools. Please contact the department to schedule a loan, 435-797-1273 or geo@usu.edu.

Educational Materials

The museum has educational materials on earthquakes and other geologic hazards developed by the Utah Geological Survey. Many of these materials are also available as downloads from government websites. Refer to these government education materials.

Rock, Mineral, and Fossil Identification

If you have a rock, mineral, or fossil specimen that you would like to have identified, please bring it by. Did you find something that you think might be a meteorite? Someone on the staff can probably tell you about it.

Internships

A museum internship experience may be available, depending upon ones interest and the needs of the museum. This could involve the development of displays or educational programs.
