  1. Abrasives

    Scratch through the surface of these practical materials. Natural abrasives usually contain minerals with a tough grain structure, making them useful in grinding materials like metal and wood, and artificial abrasives closely mimic this structure. Learn More
  2. Graphite

    Take a closer look at the graphite in your pencil and you'll be surprised to learn that it might represent the carbon from life forms of past geological ages. Though graphite is only one form of carbon, it is found in two places: crystalline clumps and softer rocks. Learn More
  3. Oil Well Model

    Take a closer look at the intricate workings of an oil well, bearing down deep through thousands of feet of stratified rock. You will get a glimpse of the machinery as well as the tremendous power it takes to extract oil from its sandy home. Learn More
  4. Gold Mine Model

    Examine these tiny replications of a typical western gold mine and you'll discover the complicated processes and machinery used to harvest this valuable metal. Learn More
  5. Volcanoes

    Volcanoes are one of Earth's most terrifying and exhilarating spectacles. By studying volcanic material we can learn a great deal about Earth's interior. With this box, you will be able to learn volcano vocabulary, compare and contrast various igneous rocks and volcanic products, and practice estimation. Learn More
  6. Shake, Rumble, and Roll

    Earth's surface is a complex, dynamic system fractured into zones called tectonic plates. These plates are in constant motion, causing earthquakes when they move past one another. Use this box to understand the theory of continental drift, the evidence supporting the theory, and how this theory provides the context for earthquakes. Use a seismograph to learn how scientists measure earthquakes and simulate an earthquake to find out how man-made structures might react to ground movements. Learn More
  7. Coal Mine Model

    Dive into the difficult underground world of coal mining. Complete with tiny workers and machinery, this model exhibits the ways in which we locate and harvest this all-important fuel. Learn More
