Geology Rocks!

Geology Rocks!

Discover how geologists work! Go beyond igneous, sedimentary & metamorphic rocks to learn the variety of contributions minerals make.

Hands-on geology that works!

A hands-on Earth Science workshop where students investigate geological processes and landforms. Your students will learn about:

  • Earthquakes & Volcanos
  • Plate tectonics & faultlines
  • Rock types & erosion
  • Landforms & soil classification
    + many others!

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