welcome to the Geologic Times corporation website

Geologic Times Corporation proudly offers fun & educational geosciences related programs, products, and experiences all with a single goal in mind, inspiring "kids of all ages" in the sciences (NOT PROFITS!). Many believe we are Maryland's and Northern Virginia's top choice for fun & educational Geology and Paleontology related programs.  We think you will agree too. Every program and activity we offer  has educational elements carefully designed into them. But, we make sure these programs are so much fun; few even realize they are learning things too. That’s not by mistake, it’s by design and it works!

GTC Covid-19 response:

All of our operations are currently suspended until further notice in an effort to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and to best protect our staff, our families, and our customers. Currently, there is no set date that our operations will begin again. Please check back for updates and ways you can help us!

The financial effects of the temporary closure of our retail store, the suspension of all of our operations, and the cancellations educational programs and retail shows and programs has been devastating. We always need your help and support, but right now, we need that help and support more than ever. Please click on the the button below to learn how you can help.
