Geology Resources

Superior Quality Specimens, Activities, and Collections, Plus Expert Support

Since 1862, Ward's Science has pioneered revolutionary new ways to bring the study of rocks, minerals and fossils from around the globe to classrooms and research universities across the country. Starting with the Vassar Collection, Ward's Science founder Henry Ward sourced and assembled one of the first-ever geologic collections for a university.

Today, we continue to provide innovative teaching solutions and specimens of the  highest quality that make it easier for educators to connect their students to the natural world around them.

Widest Selection of Specimen Material

Individually hand-cut and selected for greater consistency in size and characteristic representation, our specimens are never crushed and sorted. Plus, we prepare, process, and assemble every kit and collection in our own on-site geology facility so we can ensure the highest teaching quality from start to finish.

Materials Designed to Match Your Curriculum Requirements

We prepare specimens in multiple size options to match your specific activity and save you time, so there’s no need to revise your lesson plans to match the specimen provided. Don’t have time to plan a complete lesson? Choose an activity kit with all the materials you need, plus comprehensive activity guides written by Ward’s Science geology experts and former educators.
