As part of Junior Rangers Programme Primary 5 pupils discovered the geological history of the local park by examining rocks in an old quarry.

We were lucky to be supported by Edinburgh University on the day. Rock rubbings, geological timelines and exploding jelly volcano made for a great day!

Here is a wee video on how to make a jelly volcano. Our volcano was just a mini version but worked really well.
