In addition, special guests will be at the booth during the day:
Dem Bones: Geological Sciences assistant professor Tim Demko and his students will prep dinosaur bones for all to see and answer questions from the audience. On the hour and the half hour, they’ll describe the bone prep process.
Wicked Rocks: Scott Wolter, UMD alumnus and geology expert, will show agates from his collection, the largest collection of Lake Superior agates in the world. His Native American Minnehaha Falls artifact and others—some bigger than cantelopes—will be on display. Wolter will also share stories of his adventure with the Kensington Rune Stone.
