2011 Annual Gem and Mineral Show and Science Open House

We had a fantastic Gem and Mineral Show this year. The change from a Saturday/ Sunday show to a Friday/ Saturday show gave students the opportunity to visit the show between classes. 
 
We would like to thank everyone for coming out to see the show and showing your support for the Sciences.

My interest in geology goes back as far as I can remember. My dad’s family is from Bancroft, Ontario, the self-styled mineral capital of Canada, so for every Christmas my Grandparents would give me beautiful rock samples from their area.

Homer Watson Park geology

Kitchener: The Homer Watson Park section

P. F. Karrow

On the west bank of the Grand River, at Homer Watson Park, is an exposure of the subsurface materials which reveals something of the geological history of the Kitchener area. The exposure was created by river bank erosion by the Grand River. From time to time the exposure is covered by slumped material and vegetation, but this varies with river flooding and weather conditions.

Geology of the University of Waterloo campus

What on Earth: Volume 7 2011

In natural science, the frontier of the unknown is never far away. One of the frontiers lies below our feet. What lies below the surface of the ground? How did the University campus get to be so hilly?
 
In May, 1976, a hole was drilled by the Department of Earth Sciences drilling rig beside the Chemistry Building, in order to get a glimpse into the unknown below us.
