Each workshop will consist of morning investigations in a geology laboratory setting asking:
- What type of rocks occur in East Texas, and how did they form?
- How does coal, oil and gas form throughout East Texas?
- How do geo-scientists extract coal and petroleum products in East Texas?
- Why are these resources important to East Texas?
In the afternoon, students will move outside and will use seismic tools to create vibrations on the ground.
These vibrations transmit through the subsurface then are recorded to interpret the layers of rock beneath their feet.
