Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar


Lancashire Children’s University works with schools across the region to encourage children to take part in extra-curricular activities. We reward participation through our Passport to Learning and Graduation ceremonies. Volcanoes! will be an exciting lecture for families and KS2 children from the local schools and community to come and have a hands-on experience with demonstrations at a real university. Learning all about volcanoes, children will be given the opportunity to build some model volcanoes and create their own 'eruptions' using chemical reactions. There will be sample volcanic rocks, photos and videos of real eruptions and a map of active volcanoes around the world. When learning about eruptions, children can consider the associated hazards and the effects that volcanoes can have on the world. Delivered as a “lecture”, there will be a mixture of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on experiments. The session will be fun and interactive, giving children the opportunity to visit a university environment and meet a trained volcanologist. This lecture is a collaboration between Lancashire Children's University, Lancaster Environment Centre and Science from the Start for British Science Week 2016 and will run between 4 and 5 pm at Lancaster Environment Centre. Booking is essential - please email kate@seftonebp.co.uk or call 0151 330 5763.
