Today is the day! Take this chance to join one of our Kaleideum educators as we visit the Vulcan Materials' quarry. Students will get up close with a large collection of gems and minerals as they explore the Joseph A. Gutierrez Geology and Earth Museum. In addition, we will all take a look down into the massive pit, and marvel at this working rock quarry where actual minerals we use in everyday items are mined.
