We launched The Barrington Hippo today with a geology workshop at St Andrew's School, Soham. Here is Matthew Brady from Cambridge University getting ready to give the Year 5s a crash course in sedimentology. My personal favourite was flour sprinkled on water and falling through it to the bottom to show how chalk is formed by the tiny skeletons of algae sinking to the bottom of the ocean. Who knew that there used to be an ocean here?!!
