This Saturday, December 8th, the Crater Rock Museum’s Children’s Educational Series is presenting a class on meteorites. Children (and adults!) will have the opportunity to learn all about meteorites with Charles Rogers, Rogue Community College geology instructor. Real meteorites will be on display to examine and touch. Charles will answer questions such as:
- Where in the universe do meteorites come from?
- Where have meteorites hit the earth?
- What are falling stars?
- And much more! Ask questions, and get expert answers!
Classes will begin at 10 a.m. and repeat every hour on the hour until 3 p.m. Children receive free admission. Adult entry is $4.00.
