The UK's Nationwide Geology Club for Children

Festival of Geology Saturday 3 November – 2018

Come along to the Festival of Geology on Saturday 3 November at University College London.

It’s organized by the Geologists’ Association and is a fabulous day of talks, walks and activities.  Lots to see and do with exhibitors and traders coming from all over the country.  Fossils, minerals and rocks galore!  And a ‘special’ this year is a presentation of the Moon Rocks which are on loan from the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

Rockwatch will have activities for children in the Discovery Room with Jurassic dioramas, fossil plaster-casting and, of course, the Kent Geology Group will be there with their fabulous microfossils.  Look at the tiniest fossil imaginable through a microscope and make your own slides to take home.  At the other end of the spectrum you can even put on goggles and have a go at being a stone mason!

For adults and older children there are four talks throughout the day – one of them is ‘A Geological Tour Around the Early Solar System’ by Tim Gregory from BBC Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes!  He’ll definitely be able to answer all your Moon Rocks Questions!

The Festival is a free event and is open from 10.30 till 4.30

Do come along!  University College London, Gower Street, London WC1 6BT
