About Us

Tom and Myrna at the coastTom and Myrna at the Oregon coast

Myrna became interested in Earth Science with the eruption of Mount Saint Helens. The volcano is located about 90 miles from our home. Myrna created her own lessons plans and took her sons to watch the volcano erupt. 

Tom, Myrna and Brett started their home-based business in 1998. The business began with a single rock identification kit that included a textbook and a set of volcanic rocks. Today the company has over thirty books and seven different set of rocks for sale. 

Myrna is a prize winning author and was named Professional of the Year for Science Textbook Publishing. Our company sells science materials world wide. Our science materials were on display in Australia as part of an Earth Science exhibit on educational materials that are available to the general public.
