The Corpus Christi Geological Society is busy inspiring a new generation of young geologists with its Maps in Schools project.
Retired petroleum geologist Owens Hopkins came up with the Maps in Schools project as a way to get young people curious about Earth Science at an early age. Towards this end, CCGS has presented over 1300 laminated, framed USGS Geologic Maps of Time and Terrain to schools throughout the country. Each map is accompanied by an explanatory booklet and a 45 minute presentation to students and teachers from a CCGS geologist.
