Science Saturdays - "Minerals Rock!"

  • Fairmount Water Works (map)

From our partners at Fairmount Water Works:

Drop in every Saturday between 2-4 pm, and together, we’ll explore different aspects of our environment during fun and interactive sessions in our water lab.

There are some very old and special rocks that are found in Fairmount Park. Head to the Fairmount Water Works and learn about the minerals that make up these rocks and how they formed hundreds of millions of years ago.  Investigate the geology of Philadelphia, see samples of local rocks and minerals and even learn how the water chemistry of the Schuylkill river has a lot to do with the rocks that it flows over. This Science Saturday will be rockin!
