Rocks and Minerals
Here is a chance to study the common rock forming minerals and rock types using the University collection. Emphasis will be given to rocks and minerals that can be found locally on the beaches of Holderness. Experienced students will have the opportunity to study rarer minerals and rock types if they wish. Course starts Wednesday 28th September 2011.
Rocks and minerals through the Microscope
This course provides an opportunity for students to discover the exciting world of rocks and minerals as they appear through the polarising microscope. Students will use equipment that is not normally available to the amateur and specimens from the University's collection, to reach a deeper understanding of the rocks and minerals. Course starts on Wednesday 18th January 2012
Collecting Rocks, Minerals and Fossils
Collecting rocks, minerals and fossils is an exciting way to study the history of our world and is a rewarding hobby in itself. This course will show you what to look for, where to go, how to collect safely, how to take care of your collection and where you can get help and advice on identifications. Course starts Wednesday 18th April 2012. Includes three field trips at weekends.
Rocks and Fossils of the Yorkshire Coast
The course will include four half days of fieldwork, at weekends, to study the rocks of the Early Jurassic, Middle Jurassic, Cretaceous and the Quaternary. We will see how changes to sea level and climate have produced the diversity of rocks and fossils we now see on our coastline. Course starts on Wednesday 18th July 2012 .
