He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out." (Luke 19:40, ESV)

The stones will cry out to students during this engaging geological and meteorological Explore Day. Learn about earth science from a biblical perspective through hands-on fossil activities and interactive programs. Students will walk away with an in-depth understanding of how the rocks, water, and weather testify to a young earth and omnipotent Creator God.

Open to students in grades 6–12 (ages 11 and up).

Explore Earth Science is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each Explore Day includes a minimum of four hands-on, interactive sessions. The yearly topics are provided in the schedule below.
