Virtual Education Rocks

When students can’t come to us, we go to them online. Abbey from our Western Division met with nearly 50 2nd graders from Ericson Elementary School. She put on her PPE and showed them how important rocks are in our daily lives. One of 235 similar partnerships across the country, our Carroll Canyon quarry in the San Diego area has partnered with Ericson for over 12 years.
