The 31st of Dec 2017. Early Sunday morning saw a motley group of excited school children climbing a hill and collecting white stones (minerals). Their first introduction to the wonderful world of rocks and minerals. – a ‘very hands on’ input into some basics of Earth Sciences – Interior of the earth, Types of rocks and the physical world.
After the initial briefing and instructions, CERG volunteers lead the students up hill to a land excavation/hill cutting site where the young students collected different types rocks and minerals for their personal collection.
