*This event is the same day as the birding field trip. Please contact us if you need to change your RSVP for either event. Please only sign up for both if you plan to attend both.

Please arrive by 12:15 so we can check in and go together as a group. Once inside, parents are free to choose whichever activity or booth they want to take their kids to. Please bring a pencil for each child to complete their scavenger hunt. 

At the show, children are given grade-level, TEKS-aligned, age-appropriate “scavenger hunt” questionnaires that enable them to learn about Earth Science. The lesson plan developed by the HGMS Education Committee for elementary and secondary schools sets learning objectives for natural science that are emphasized through scientific investigation and reasoning. We provide numerous hands-on activities where students observe, compare, record, and learn about the physical properties of rocks and characteristics of minerals including hardness, color, luster, and streak.

The program for Grades 4 and higher includes an exciting and informative presentation by Mad Science demonstrating rock types and tectonic plate activity including a simulated earthquake. The Dino Dig area gives children in Grades K-3 their own place to dig for dinosaurs, minerals, and other fun geology items.

Every student receives a free mineral or fossil specimen upon checking out for the show.

Venue Covid-19 policies: Masks encouraged, but not required at the venue. 

Event is open to the public at the event. This is not a private CHC event. 

Please make sure that each ticket purchased has each child's name/age/grade. Please only fill out parent information on your specific ticket. 

Important: Health and Wellness Reminder: Please stay safe and follow health and safety precautions. If anybody in your family has a fever or any other potential symptoms of Covid or any other illness, please stay home and do not bring your kids to any events.
