Science Workshops

PalaeoQuest

Get very hands-on with rocks, fossils, soils and artifacts. Unearth, examine, compare, sort, and investigate hundreds of specimens. Learn how to read the clues that the past has left for us. Discover how different the world and its creatures were in the deep, deep past. Be amazed by the story of Evolution (including your own). ​Learn how vital the earth and its resources are to us, and gain a new appreciation for the natural world. Every rock has a story to tell....

Dr Helen, professional palaeontologist & child-friendly scientist, brings rocks, fossils, artefacts, games, challenges, knowledge & enthusiasm into your classroom to help you, the teachers, inspire a future generation of scientists & creative thinkers.  Palaeoquest workshops are ideal for your Science Week, NC topics or enrichment activities. They are not science "shows" (although an assembly can be included). They are an opportunity for children to explore, discover, & think, for themselves - in the way that real science is done. Dr Helen (BSc, MSc, PhD) has worked in universities & industry, & has published her research in international journals.  She now works with schools to provide hands-on, innovative & engaging STEM, Geography & History activities to pupils... always backed up by real science.           palaeoquest@btinternet.com         01442 828866
