Undergraduate Study


Earth Sciences Taster Day

For children in care in school years 7-11

Would you like to :

  • find out why volcanoes erupt?
  • have a look at some dinosaur fossils and think about what we can learn from them?
  • get a taste of life as a student at the University of Cambridge?

If you answered yes to ANY of the questions above then this FREE event during the Easter holidays is for you!

The programme includes an interactive session about volcanoes and a visit to the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, along with a tour of a Cambridge College with current students and a session introducing participants to Higher Education. Please see the flyer (right sidebar) for further information about the day.
