Geoscience Education in the Mountain State:
RockCamp III

Dividing Line RockCamp Logo

RockCamp participants have asked for more extensive learning opportunities--especially field-oriented ones. Honoring their request, RockCamp III was developed to provide them with a chance to see the geomorphology, tectonic, structural, and stratigraphic geology of the New River. Twenty-six teachers participated in this 6-day trip. We began at the headwaters of the New River in North Carolina and concluded with a day of whitewater rafting on the New in West Virginia. It is amazing how relevant a discussion of rocks can be to a successful run of the rapids! Each participant was required to develop an activity that would allow them to share some portion of their experience with their students.
