AKL Heritage Festival: Rocks, pops, and quakes: volcanoes and earthquakes
Free event for all ages of kids and kids-at-heart.
Have you ever found a rock and wondered what it was? Want to know why some buildings stand up in an earthquake and others fall down? Or why some volcanoes erupt with lava flows and some with huge explosions? Come do some fun volcano-related experiments and see examples of explosive and oozing eruption styles.
Learn about earthquakes and the engineering that goes into keeping buildings up. Talk to volcanologists, seismologists, and engineers from The University of Auckland and ask any questions you have about volcanoes, earthquakes, minerals and rocks.
This event is part of Auckland Heritage Festival 2021, 2 October-17 October. From 24 August, visit heritagefestival.co.nz for a full list of events and details
