CGCC hosted its third annual Kids Rock event on Nov. 16 on the Pecos Campus. One hundred third graders from Weinberg
elementary school, coached by 13 CGCC education majors, spent the day erupting
volcanoes, digging for rocks, and learning about geology. The event had two purposes: to give the elementary students a glimpse into college-level subject material and to provide the
CGCC students enrolled in “Geology for Elementary Teachers” a chance to put
their teaching skills to work. The event was funded through a grant from the
ASU Teacher Foundations Project for its unique nature and direct
impact on teachers and our community.
