On Saturday, October 14th, the Center for Integrative Geosciences held the second annual Earth Science Fair in celebration of Earth Science Week. The event showcased the research of UConn faculty and graduate students, as well as engaging the public in activities that allowed them to learn about many aspects of Geoscience.
Activities included geode smashing, digging for dinosaurs, drone flight demonstrations, information on the geology of Connecticut, ice cores, flume demonstrations and much more! The event drew a large crowd, despite rainy weather, including UConn students and local families.
