Description

Class Experience

To discover and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of this course students will understand what the most precious materials are and where to find them. They will know where and how they are formed and the techniques used to extract and refine them. Perfect for all the budding mining geologists, explorers and prospectors out there.
I have a BSc in Geology and an MSc in Geophysics and have chosen the most interesting and exciting subjects to teach to get young minds fascinated by Earth Sciences.
None. Although (on request) students can be directed to other external sources discussing this area of Geology. I can also schedule a discussion group, or more advanced classes, if your child wants to explore this subject further.
None. Although (on request) the student can be sent a quick quiz on the lesson to test what they remember from the class.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class uses PowerPoint slides with text, pictures and the occasional video. No other 3rd party sources are used.
