Rock Detective Geoscience Education

Rock Detective Geoscience Education

“The Rock Detective Geoscience Education” is an educational program that helps K-12 students and teachers explore the amazing processes of our earth. This is a nonprofit organization that has won a Science Teachers Association award for having a significant impact on science education.

The organization was founded by experienced scientists and teachers who embrace the idea that the best teaching method is the one where we have to explore for ourselves. This way we learn best. People can learn about science facts themselves. That is happening with the products that the organization manufactures for educational purposes. Of course, every single product is sold at cost for a donation to the “Rock Detective Non-profit Organization”.

There is the “Rock Detective Bucket Kit” which contains rock, fossil and mineral samples and a lot of Mystery Questions. Of course there are also the answer sheets for teachers. Students can examine the specimens and think through the questions. This way, they investigate the mysteries, they communicate, they share some ideas and, at the end, they discover all the mysteries of our planet together, as a group. This amazing game really helps kids have fun, but at the same time learn something!!!
