Auburn library to hold kids’ geology program

AUBURN — The Auburn Public Library is pleased to host HighTouch HighTech Science of Maine on Saturday, Oct. 20, for a special STEM program, “Gold Rush.”

Kids will search for rocks and minerals in the crust layer of the earth’s surface. They will learn about the prospectors and how they would “pan for gems.” Then they will have their opportunity to pan for gems themselves. After the kids have found all their gems, they will become geologists and will do several geological tests on their gem stones for identification. Dr Genia Sklute from Hightouch Hightech Science will present this program for kids ages 5-10.
