The Geology Collections
Learning with objects has been an integral part of geological study at UCL since the first half of the nineteenth century. Today, the collection includes not only rocks, minerals and fossils collected over the last 175 years, but also individual collections of historical importance. The highlights include the Johnston-Lavis Volcanological collection, the Planetary Science Collection (Regional Planetary Image Facility) and the internationally recognised Micropalaeontological collections.
Start of June - November. Location: The Octagon Gallery (Wilkins Building), UCL.
Digital Frontiers: and the themes explored in the exhibition - smart, connected and participatory - aims to explore how emerging technologies are changing the way we access and experience culture and asks questions about the nature of art and technology.
The Geology Collections are represented by NASA images from the Regional Planetary Image Facility.
