The ELAM Group Goes Back to School!

The ELAM Group was thrilled to be invited to speak as guest lecturers to  Our Lady of Grace’s 3rd Grade Class on Friday, March 23rd.  Covering a range of topics from mineralogy and petrology to geomorphology The ELAM Group’s James Hogan and Steven LaFollette gave an in-class guest lecture Friday morning.  Impressed by the attentiveness and intelligent questions posed by the class The ELAM Group was delighted to have such an opportunity to help teach today’s youth about important Geologic topics.

Returning Friday afternoon, Mr. Hogan and Mr. LaFollette accompanied by ELAM’s Angela Watts took OLG’s 3rd grade class on a field trip to the White River in order to give real life examples of what was discussed earlier in the day.  Eager students were quick to point out exciting geologic features such as flood plains, terraces, sand bars, terraces, undercut banks, backswamps, and even landslides!
