Following on from the success of last year's Paleontology Museum experience, we have arranged for Explorers to attend another fun and informative session in the Museum's new Learning Labs -

Vulcanology

Educator Tom will get us exploring the earth underneath our feet, with a lesson prepared for our gifted tamariki in approx years 3-8. 

Explorers will connect with their local volcanoes, explore different types of volcanic eruptions and participate in a rock sorting challenge. 

By the end of the session Explorers will be able to - 

· Describe Auckland’s volcanic field and identify volcanoes near to their school

· Make comparisons to different types of volcanic eruptions

· Identify different types of volcanic rock

· Gain an understanding of the preparation and response to a volcanic eruption or natural disaster

Thanks to the Museum's partnership with EQC this programme is free. 

REGISTRATIONS WILL OPEN SOON! And...

We are hoping (weather permitting) that the event will be preceded by a

PICNIC IN THE DOMAIN, to celebrate GIFTED AWARENESS WEEK!

WATCH THIS SPACE!
