Science in the field
In February 2013, Natural History Museum scientists will set off for Popocatepetl in Mexico, to carry out fieldwork around the second highest volcano in North America. Constantly erupting, Popocatepetl is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. This exciting project will collect samples that will tell us all about its history and about the different magmatic processes that have occurred during its lifespan.

Join us to discover the benefits this data can bring to society and find out how science works in such a high risk environment. For full details and to express an interest in taking part, email
Extinction: Not the End of the World?
This highly topical exhibition takes us beyond dodos and dinosaurs to explore the crucial role extinction plays in the evolution of life. Can conservation save species or could we be on
the verge of causing the next mass extinction?

The exhibition opens on 8 February 2013.
Prices for school groups are 3 per student,
with free entry for adult helpers.
