Come be a geologist for the day at Tellus! Bring your handbooks! Learn about the anatomy of planet Earth from the inside out, what makes a volcano erupt and how minerals affect your everyday life by visiting the Weinman Mineral Gallery. Put your hands on the three rock types and test minerals to learn how to identify them. You’ll even be able to pan for real gemstones. Begin your collections as each scout receives a “Scout Pack” consisting of various rocks and minerals labeled with their names and uses. You’ll even take a trip in our digital planetarium to learn about Supervolcanoes. Earn your “Earth Rocks” adventure and complete the “Down and Dirty” Nova module for Webelos, all while having fun at Tellus.
