Hands-on geology that works

A hands-on Earth Science workshop where students investigate geological processes and land forms. 
Your students will learn about erosion, plate tectonics, land forms, soil classification, earthquakes, rock types
+ many others!

This science workshop is a run as station based exploratory session with our presenter working with the students to ensure learning outcomes are met.


Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Nina for coming out to M.E.T. Kellyville today to lead us through the Geology Rocks and Hot and Cold programmes. It was very professionally run and Nina was very patient with the many requests of the students. A huge thank you once again, we look forward to running more workshops in the future.
