British Geological Survey and Rockwatch Fossil Fun Event

With the annual National Science week rapidly approaching (from 12th to 21st March), team members at Everything Dinosaur are busy preparing for all the activities they have planned.  This years theme is “Earth” and ties into the International Year of Biodiversity and there are lots of events planned around the country.

Fossil Fun Day

For example, the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Rockwatch (the club for young fossil fans and junior geologists) is holding a special family fossil fun day on Saturday March 20th.

Numbers are limited for this fun day out, so best to book early to avoid disappointment.  The event is taking place at the BGS premises at Keyworth, Nottingham on Saturday 20th and the event opens at 10am.

To book visit write to Katie Tietjen at the address at the bottom of the advert.

Here is your chance to peep into prehistory with the BGS fossil collection, see how earthquakes happen and to pan for gold.  Entry is free and young children must be accompanied by an adult (after all, why should the kids have all the fun), best to book early to avoid missing out.

Team members at Everything Dinosaur wish the event organisers every success.
