James Presents to FWISD Students
Don James, Water Resources Design, Fort Worth, presented about the Rock Cycle to 263 sixth graders in eight classes at Wedgwood Sixth Grade School last month. Don covered the main geological concepts and the group responded with lots of questions.
During the presentation, Don passed around his 36-year-old rock collection. He discussed and presented examples of the three rock types -- sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic -- where they can be found in Texas, and some of their significant uses. Don also talked about what a geologist does, the many disciplines of geology, and what he does at Freese and Nichols.
Program director Elisa Williamson and staff members Keith Vick, Monique Long and Sara Coddington all indicated their appreciation to Don and Freese and Nichols for the class material and this type of student mentorship. The Fort Worth ISD program encompasses comprehensive study of the natural and physical sciences, including biological and geological processes.
