Pink Terraces presentations for Rotorua Schools

From Wednesday 16th February to Friday 18th, I will be touring Rotorua schools with a presentation about the Rotomahana Project. (If you haven't caught up about this yet you can read an earlier blog post about it or watch this video). Contact me soon if you would like your school included - there are a couple of time slots still available as I write this.

This is an opportunity for local school children to learn something of how scientists go about their work as well as the inside story of the Pink Terraces rediscovery.

I will also be announcing the winners of the Poster Competition. - If you haven't seen the posters yet, the exhibition in Rotorua Central Library is still open until Friday the 18th February.

The variety and detail of the posters makes for a colourful collection. Some of them have also proved to be very accurate predictions of what the scientists actually found on the lake bed of Rotomahana!
Picking winners has not been easy. Here is a photo of the project leader Cornel de Ronde having a careful look at the entries.

Watch this space after next week to see which ones were selected and earned the fantastic prizes offered by Waimangu Volcanic Valley

We would love to have you come and visit Otonga Primary next week. Is Friday still an option for you? Also can you give an indication of the length of your presentation and what age groups it is suitable for.
Cheers, Matt L
