Coyotes can be controversial. To different people and cultures, the coyote carries diverse significance. But outside of the meaning we give these animals, they have a natural purpose of their own. While they go about that purpose, they occasionally come into contact with us, whether in the wilderness, where coyotes prefer to spend their time, or in human spaces.
One of the perks of being a field geologist is that they often get to spend time outside! Follow along with a geologist as he spends a day mapping rocks in the Jemez Mountains, and then try your own hand at observing rocks and mapping soils

Maybe you’ve read in the news that Jupiter and Saturn will appear like one giant star, the closest they’ve been in hundreds of years, on December 21, 2020. We’ve prepared a slideshow about the conjunction to explain this cool event!
The first 7 slides are a basic introduction, including an outdoor, hands-on portion that all ages can do.
Slides marked with a blue star go into a little more depth about angular measurements.
Slides marked with a purple star are a fun, hands-on activity about the solar system that only requires a piece of paper and a pencil.
