WOOSTER, OH – The Wooster Geologists are pleased to be part of the Expanding Your Horizons Program, a science workshop aimed at encouraging young women to consider science as a career. This year’s topics ranged from sunscreen to marshmallow-spaghetti towers. Our workshop focused on minerals in common household products. We’ve ran this workshop once or twice before, but now that the X-ray lab is fully established, we’ve (mostly) worked out the kinks.
The girls were expert geologists, correctly matching each of the minerals to their products. A special thanks to Wooster Geology Major Anna Mudd for guiding the girls through their experiment!
