Earth Science Week



Join the School of Earth Sciences and the Orton Geological Museum in celebrating Earth Science Week and National Fossil Day

In 2020, our celebration was all virtual, with an installation of a Digital Exhibit of Ohio fossils, a new video, and a special live talk.

In 2019, our celebration of National Fossil Day (October 16, 2019) was also a celebration of the first anniversary of the installation of the Cryolophosaurus skeleton in Orton Hall’s lobby. Activities include carnival-style games, fossil digs, museum tours and talks.

Please join us next year for our Earth Science Week celebrations!!
