The Summer Brainshop series at the Family Learning Center of the Leon County Public Library is an opportunity to speak mostly to parents and students about a topic, in this case, the geology and geomorphology of the capital region. I have worked with Karen Mesterton-Gibbons from the Family Learning Center at this site in previous years. I typically bring maps, pictures, diagrams, rocks, minerals, and some minor hands-on materials, such as limestone reaction with rainwater. The maps have been paper in the past, but Karen has informed me that they now have the option for me to show the maps electronically. The main advantage is the ability to zoom in or out to different features that a static paper map cannot do. While I have a general outline to talk about the local geology and geomorphology, the presentation is different each time based upon the attendees, how inquisitive they are, or if they really seem interested in only one part of what I have prepared. The geomorphology is an addition from previous years as this research is part of my current work duties.
