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.

 

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.

    The Canadian Rockies Earth Science Resource Centre (CRESRC) has additional geoscience exhibits to engage visitors, including 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. The Science Odyssey ESfS Canmore Passport will suggest additional local science highlights for families to enjoy such as a fossil-filled, local hike.
