Kickstart: Geology and Fossils.

    Geology: a science that deals with the history of the earth and its life, especially as recorded in rocks.
Fossils: the remains, impressions or traces of ancient life that have been preserved by natural processes.


Our new theme for 2018-2019is Geology and Fossils.  Please contact a member of the regional committee to purchase our booklet for £5.00.  Purchase of the booklet assists keeping the programme going - there is no obligation to attend a workshop.  It is also available to download at the bottom of this page. The booklet gives you many ideas for starting points to explore to create an item for exhibition of for your own pleasure.

The British Geological Society has its Head Quarters at Keyworth.  There is a 'walk through time' experience.  Their open day this year is on Sunday 1st July, so take the family.  Otherwise they are open weekdays from 9.30am.  There is also a restaurant for refreshments.
