Learn about Geology with Jim Holstein
Jim Holstein, Collections Manager in Geology, will bring rocks of all shapes, sizes, and colors to the Backroom. Come under our blackout tent to see rocks that glow, chat with Jim about what meteorites can tell us about the history of the earth, and dig out some crystals and gold from our Backroom sandbox.
While The Backroom will remain open to regular bar foot traffic during our events and discussions, seating for them is first come, first served. Following Jim’s presentation, a Glitter Guts photobooth becomes available for use featuring a custom backdrop by Stephen Eichhorn
