To kick off season three of Mineral Monday and in celebration of our one-year anniversary (Woo Hoo!), we are excited to announce a special Mineral Monday Competition! We want to invite all school-aged viewers to submit their own video interpretation of a Mineral Monday episode about your favorite object, topic or fact related to earth science. Keck Museum curator and Mineral Monday host Garrett Barmore will review and judge the submissions. The individual or group with the best video will have their video shared with our audience, and will get the opportunity to co-host an episode of Mineral Monday with Garrett Barmore himself!
Watch this week's Mineral Monday episode with co-host Audrey, learn a bit about the mineral sulfur, and get your cameras ready!
