Colorado Springs and Lake George Pebble Pups Publish a Paper

Greetings,
I work with two groups of students between the ages of 10 and 14.  One group lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  The other group lives in Lake George, Colorado, a very small, rural community. In addition to this, I have several students who participate with us via the Internet that I have never met.  The group of children are called pebble pups who will grow up to be "rock hounds" and enjoy a hobby that takes them outdoors.

Recently, we worked on ancient Egyptian artifacts.  The pebble pups characterized the artifacts, imaged them through a microscope, and did some research and writing.  They did a very good job, and their work was published by a British magazine, Deposits, that is published internationally.  Here is a link to a recent newspaper article about what these students accomplished.  Click on the link below:
