I’ve sent everyone booked onto this trip an email with details of when and where to meet & my mobile phone number. If you haven’t received this email please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll re-send it. Please email me with your mobile number if you’d like to be kept up to date in the case of any last minute changes. I’m not expecting there to be any but you never know!
“This fun science show explores geological interactions at the boundaries of tectonic plates,
when they collide, slide past each other and separate, showing the effects on the landscape and
setting the rock cycle in a dramatic context. We look at some of the methods used by Museum
scientists and geologists around the world to study Earth’s surface, including earthquakes and
volcanoes, such as note taking and rock collecting, the use of seismometers and analysing lava.
There are engaging demonstrations involving large props, messy experiments, volunteers and
lots of audience participation”
Meet at 10.15am (for entrance at 10.30) (We’re meeting at 10.15 outside the Attenborough Studio in the Darwin Centre of the NHM (ground floor, orange zone)

The Natural History Museum is open 10-17.50. NHM usually has a picnic area and cloakroom available for educational groups, however as this is short notice both are fully booked. There are outdoor areas for picnics only, and the museum also has restaurants and snack bars. There is a public cloakroom which costs £1 per item. Booking will close on 5th June, so that I can confirm numbers with NHM.
