and the Poster Contest
New England Mineral Conference
Education Day is a no-fee opportunity to learn hands-on about geology and minerals! Based primarily on the geology of New England, anyone who comes will learn what may be just inches to a few feet below where they are standing. This area produces some of the most exciting rocks and minerals to be found. We encourage you to bring your students for the day. There are over 20 different education stations from finding and identifying rocks and minerals, to faceting rocks into gemstones, to microscopes where you can see small minerals, and an area where you can get the chance to sluice for your own minerals. Your students will be involved in hands-on, interesting, and fun activities that educate in a memorable way. CLICK HERE for more information about Education Day.
The Poster Contest is an opportunity for students to conduct a research project that takes the subject of New England’s rocks & minerals and displays it on a poster that is submitted electronically. Student posters are judged to grade level according to a rubric that can be uploaded right from this portal. We will print the top posters and they will be displayed in their own gallery throughout the entirety of the New England Mineral Conference. Presentations recognizing the winners include amazing mineral specimens and trips! CLICK HERE to learn more about the Poster Contest.
