Minerama in Glen Innes is New South Wales’ largest annual gem and jewellery show, and will be held on March 7-10 in 2019. You can learn more about the festival at www.minerama.com.au.
We are excited to announce that the UNE Discovery Voyager team are partnering with Minerama to deliver interactive, exploratory and play-based experiences in science on Friday and Saturday, 8-9th March!
Students can experience a range of hands-on, interactive science activities during their visit to the festival:
On both the Friday and Saturday, there will also be a Scavenger Hunt, and Guess the Weight of the Meteorite, open to all – and yes, prizes can be won! The students can even bring any rocks and fossils to be identified by UNE Geologists and Palaeontologists, who will be joining us at our public marquee for both days. We encourage lots of exploration and asking questions at Minerama this year!
Workshops will be held on Friday 8th March, will run for one hour, and can accommodate groups of up to 30 students. There will be a small cost of $4 per student for workshops.
We will be offering four activities for the Friday sessions:
Available timeslots are:
For more information on these activities, please see the attached document. Workshop places are limited and bookings are essential, so get in quick!
On Saturday 9th March, we will offer walk-in, interactive experiences in Soil Science, Palaeontology and Weighing Giants in our pavilion, along with the Scavenger Hunt, the opportunity to pick the brains of UNE Geologists and Palaeontologists, and displays from the UNE Natural History Museum!
