Earth Science for Society

ESfS in Motion

ESfS in Motion’s travelling exhibits showcase three fun and interactive stations: the Trilobite Fossil Station, the Rock Cycle Station and the Our Changing World station. The Trilobite Fossil Station allows participants to touch, identify and classify trilobite fossils. The Rock Cycle Station has sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks and mineral samples to examine. The Our Changing World station has activities related to plate tectonics and seismic methods.

Visit ESfS in Motion’s Our Changing World station on Sustainability Sunday, June 17, 2018 at the Resources for Future Generations conference in Vancouver.

Join the CSEG Foundation’s Earth Science for Society (ESfS) team for Science Odyssey activities in Canmore and Calgary. Science Odyssey’s Canada-wide ten days of discovery & innovation takes place May 11 to 20, 2018. See below for ESfS activities.

  • Open to the public
  • Family Friendly
  • Hands-on exhibits & activities
  • Free admission

Explore Rocks, Fossils and the Earth! Touch, identify, and classify trilobite fossils. Explore rocks and minerals at the Rock Cycle station. Make an earthquake at the Our Changing World station.

ESfS activities are free, aimed at youth, but are enjoyable and educational for all ages. Activity stations will link exciting observations from the natural world with real applications in society. The Earth Science for Society committee believes that increased science literacy is essential for the students of today as they are the decision-makers of tomorrow and the future caretakers of the Earth.
