About GIA GemKids


Are you looking for a fun way to share gem, mineral and geology knowledge with your students? The Gemological Institute of America® (GIA), with headquarters in Carlsbad, California, is a public benefit, nonprofit institute that is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. We have worked with the Smithsonian Institute and the Natural History Museum in LA to share gem research. We also graded the Hope Diamond!

We are excited to introduce GIA GemKids™, a free, 1-hour long program that complements the existing school district earth science curriculum for grades 4, 5 and 6. Through a fascinating information-packed, live Zoom presentation, students will learn about geology, plate tectonics, and the rock cycle as they follow along with a worksheet.

Since its founding in 2003, GemKids has shared the wonder of gems and minerals with 18,000 students. We would love to host your class, and registration is now open!
