An introduction to Geology, focusing primarily on Australia.
We will continue to look at the big picture of what Australia is made of and where it came from before moving quickly onto specific rocks, gems and minerals.
The course will have a minor focus on those items the participants have in their own collections from those we can work back to discuss how they came about and investigate their location and Geological era. We will also look at fossils, the eras, the geology we find them in and how they are formed.
The course will involve a few field trips which will be separate from the programmed times as they will be all day events. They will not be demanding or involve long distance walking, maybe 500 metres or so, and definitely no scrambling up steep hills. Not compulsory, but fun.
THERE ARE NO PREREQUISITES. You might have never taken a geology course in your life but you are fascinated by this topic. If so, this course is for you! You do not need a background in science, just a keen interest in finding out how things work.
**Please note this is a face to face course and only those members who have been fully vaccinated and have had their vaccination certificate sighted by U3A Sunbury can attend.
