Reading the Rocks: How Geology Tells the Earth’s Story

June 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Our planet is so old, it’s hard to wrap your head around – let alone fathom how short our lifespans on earth are – when compared with just about anything in the realm of geology. Join for the WHYY & Academy Speaker Series where Maiken Scott explores with geologist and author Marcia Bjornerud how thinking like a geologist can have immeasurable impacts beyond our time.


Schedule of events:

6 p.m. Bring a favorite stone and geologist and author Marcia Bjornerud will identify what type of rock it is and what its approximate age is before her conversation with WHYY’s Maiken Scott!
6:30 – 8 p.m. Maiken Scott in conversation with Marcia Bjornerud
