This dynamic and hands-on workshop challenges students to think for themselves, and to use their knowledge of everyday physics to come to an understanding of the rheology and behaviour of the Earth’s mantle. We take students on a journey through seismic imaging, mantle convection and solid-state creep. With a heavy side of ‘how science works’ and six practical activities, this 2-hour workshop is great for introducing Key Stage 3 students to geoscientists and the Deep Earth. The workshop was originally designed to be delivered by an external outreach scientist, but could just as easily be run by a teacher, especially one with a background in geosciences.
