Rocks tell the story of Earth’s history. Become a Geologist and investigate how time shapes and transforms the ever changing landscape in which we live.

In this hands-on rock exploration, students investigate interesting properties of rocks such as crystal formation, colour, fluorescence and texture. Students are introduced to geological change over time and invited to sort a selection of mystery rocks into the categories of igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic. Students are invited to participate in a classroom discussion about the importance of rocks, the stories they tell and how they are used to create the many comforts of modern life (even within the classroom!).
