Geology Rocks!

February 12 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm GMT

As part of the Year of Young People celebration, Aberdeen Science Centre is exploring what’s beneath our feet in the ‘Geology Rocks!’ February half-term event.

The world was once ruled by dinosaurs, how do we know what these giants of the past looked like? Fossils are the answer. At Aberdeen Science Centre you’ll get the chance to hold real fossils that are over 100 million years old and find out how fossils are formed.

See what you can find in our diamond and dino dig challenge perfect for young palaeontologists.

Our rock lab lets you become a geologist for the day and try your hand at rock identification. For younger visitors, take part in a fun and interactive storytelling.

Have you ever wondered what happens inside a volcano? Get hands-on with cooled lava and then build and erupt your own volcano.

If you have a rock collection Aberdeen Science Centre’s resident geologists will be on hand to talk to you about any rocks you have or answer your geology questions.

‘Geology Rocks!’ running at Aberdeen Science Centre on Saturday 9th February to Wednesday 13th February.
