Geology summer school

Every young geology ethusiast who attended at least one of our field trips knows that geology is not just about 'boring grey rocks'. At our Geology summer school, we teach children just that, strengthening their interest in nature and our surrounding environment. Via observing and studying natural phenomena right in the field, children learn to understand geological processes. We visit points of geological interest where unique minerals, fossils and rock samples can be found and new things can be learned outside the classroom.

The Geology summer school is held annually. We welcome all young geologists between the ages of 15 and 20. 

Geology summer school 2023


is a stay-at-home summer camp where we teach palaeontology, mineralogy and geology in an engaging practical way - right in the field. The Geocamp field trips focus on the areas of Boskovice, Moravian Karst, and the Vysočina region. At localities of interest, we demonstrate geological phenomena, records of past life on our planet, proofs of past climate changes and fluctuations in the Earth history and much more.

Lectures and field trips for schools 

Are you a teacher looking to enhance your lessons with some interesting geological facts? Our staff members offer to walk you through current topics in geology, explain how this area of science relates to our everyday lives and what a geologist's work entails. Alternatively, you may be interested in scheduling a private field trip for your class where we will demonstrate how geologists read and geological information from the rock record straight in the field!

Researcher's Night

Researcher's Night is an all-European science festival for everyone who wishes to explore various areas of science. Every year, we prepare fun activities relating to (for example) climate changes in Earth's past, record of long gone seas or ancient volcanic activity in our surrounding areas. We also invite enthusiasts to visit our mineral and fossil collections, try panning for gold or garnets or picking fossil bones and teeth from ice age cave sediment.
