Gem and Mineral Show 2013
Students from the East Tennessee State University Geosciences Club, led by Dr. Mick Whitelaw and Dr. Ingrid Luffman demonstrated a large number of earth science topics, including fossil casting, groundwater flow simulation, fossil hunting in beach sand, and mineral properties. Thanks to Lindsey Farris, ETSU Geology major and Geosciences Club Secretary, for the photos!
John Sinclair of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute, brought meteorite samples for display, including a huge specimen of the Campo de Cielo meteorite that visitors could touch! He also had a polarizing microscope and thin sections of a number of interesting meteorites.
