The APEGA Rock & Fossil Clinic

The APEGA Rock and Fossil Clinic is held in October each year at the TELUS World of Science in Edmonton. This public event serves as an introduction to the wonders of geoscience and what a career in geoscience could look like.

Have you found an interesting rock or fossil that you would like identified? Volunteer geoscientists and geoscience students are available on-site to examine and provide feedback on specimens. They also lead a hands-on activity, designed to further expose youth to geoscience principles. This fun event is free for everyone.

Thank you to the TELUS World of Science - Edmonton for hosting the 26th annual Rock and Fossil Clinic on October 19, 2019. Join us again in October 2020 to learn about geoscience in a hands-on learning environment.
