In collaboration with DC Rocks, officers and members of DMV AWG helped plan and host several field trip events for elementary school students from EW Stokes Elementary. The field trips included a hike in Rock Creek Park led by Callan Bentley to showcase DC metamorphic and sedimentary geology; a visit to the Minerals & Gems exhibit in the Natural History Museum assisted by Madeline Shaffer, which included teaching the students different techniques used to identify minerals; and a tour of the NOAA headquarters assisted by Beverly Walker, which included participation in the launch of a weather balloon!
