geologyGold may have brought the first settlers to Idaho, but our state is also rich in silver, gemstones, and lots of industrial minerals. In this project, you’ll collect rocks, fossils, and minerals and test their properties, learn about the important roles of minerals in everyday products, make your own jewelry, and look back into geologic time (that’s billions of years!) when rocks and minerals formed. Look into the possibility of striking gold with your own career in geology.
