Kid's Rock at CGCC

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.
