Science Expo

The 2016 Science Expo!

All of the MGS Volunteers had a great time with Billings’ youth at this year’s Science Expo. Inquisitive students dropped by our booth to learn about where fossils come from, different depositional environments and where we find create jewelry, & look at minerals up-close & personal.

MGS would like to give a big thank you to all of its volunteers at this event: Mike and Rachel Alloway, Riley Brinkerhoff, Kathie Burke, Sarah Edwards, Sam Fluckiger, Andy Hennes, Chantel Lines, Mark Millard, Anna Phelps, Jackson Riley.  And a very special thanks goes to Jack Warne, who came out to volunteer with us on his birthday!  Looking forward to seeing folks again next year!
