Brian Poelker and his EIU science students invite you to the 8th annual family science night at Ballard Nature Center on Saturday, February 22 at 6pm.  It will be an evening of exploring hidden messages contained in the fossils, rocks, and minerals around us.  Participants will view stunning works of nature from all over the earth and even beyond!  EIU science education students will lead groups though hands-on activities that provide clues into the identification of the rocks and the incredible stories they tell.  Most of the activities are geared to grades 3-8, but there will be something for everyone.
