This kit features 90 different geological specimens hand selected by the science olympiad organization for the rocks and minerals event, numbered and packed into geology compartment boxes.
The 2022-2023 science olympiad kits were developed to provide an introduction to each event and are not intended to be an 'out of the box solution' for competition. Students and competitors should practice innovation and creativity to make their design their own competition-ready device/activity.
