November 2018: Dr Marta Guron organized two outreach events to local elementary schools this fall. She and Villanova students discussed geochemistry with two classes of 3rd graders.  Students performed experiments on chalk and TUMS, as they relate to calcite in rocks, and also explored the different colors that rocks have based on their make up. Well done!
