    The Earth Science for Society (ESfS) Science Odyssey Exhibit will showcase three fun and interactive stations featuring hands-on geoscience activities. Our events will be hosted at two locations: the Canadian Rockies Earth Science Resource Centre (CRESRC) in Canmore, Alberta on Saturday May 13th and Saturday May 20th and at the GeoConvention in Calgary, Alberta on Monday May 15th and Tuesday May 16th. ESfS activities are designed for youth, but are enjoyable and educational for all ages. The ESfS Fossil Station will be the anchor of the ESfS event and allow participants to touch, identify and classify trilobite fossils. There will be two other activity centres which will include a combination of hands-on activities featuring rocks and minerals, the rock cycle, and our changing world.

    On the afternoon of Monday May 15 and Tuesday May 16 at the GeoConvention in Calgary, the Canadian Rockies Earth Science Resource Centre (CRESRC) will also host educational booths to complement the ESfS activities.

    The May 13 and 20 Saturday ESfS exhibits will be hosted in Canmore at the Canadian Rockies Earth Science Resource Centre (CRESRC) which has additional geoscience exhibits to engage visitors. CRESRC exhibits include the Operation Bow Athabasca exhibit which is a tribute to the history of the Geological Survey of Canada work. CRESRC offers visitors the chance to use a microscope to observe rocks, fossils and core samples as well as to step back from the details to look at geology maps and seismic data from the area. The Science Odyssey ESfS Canmore Passport will suggest additional local science highlights for families to enjoy such as the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre and a fossil-filled, local hike. Anyone completing their passport can enter a draw for a fantastic prize.
