For well over a decade now, Geologic Times Corporation (based in Ijamsville, MD) and its D.B.A. of GTC Rock Shop & Science Education Center have been proudly providing fun & educational geosciences related programs, products, and experiences all with a single goal in mind: inspiring "kids of all ages" in the sciences. This has never been, and will never be a profit driven endeavor. Every program and activity we offer involves hands-on learning experiences with educational elements specifically designed to be so engaging and entertaining that few students even realize they are learning things. It is our belief that one of the most successful ways to teach anything is to make it fun and the results speak for themselves!

As an educational company, the success of our efforts sadly can never be measured by dollars earned, in large part because it often costs far more to run our educational programs than we could possibly charge for them. Instead, our success is based on achieving our mission plan of inspiring “kids of all ages” in the sciences, not dollars earned. For me and my entire staff, our greatest reward is knowing our hard work and efforts are making a difference, and that is something we could not be prouder of. To make our educational efforts possible, we most rely on our retail division and outside support
