Secondary School Science Workshop... Geology Rocks! | Fizzics Education

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 erosion, plate tectonics, landforms, soil classification, earthquakes, rock types and many others!

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

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

School Testimonials


MET Kellyville

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.
