Welcome to the Rock the Café planning guide. To the left is a downloadable guide to help you run a Science Café focused on geology. 

Rock the Café is inspired by NOVA’s series MAKING NORTH AMERICA, which takes viewers on a journey through the 3-billion-year geological history of the North American continent, raising numerous questions such as "How did our spectacular mountain ranges form? Can we predict earthquakes? Where did our vast oil resources come from?" and "What is the future of fossil-based vs. newewable energies?" Coastal erosion, fracking, mineral extraction, paleontology, climate change—the topics in earth science are endless and the public's curiosity about them is boundless.
