Three SoGE staff (Jeannie Scott, Andres Payo, and Patrick Thomson) took part in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History's "Wow! How?" science fair on Saturday 15 March. This is the third year that the "Disaster Zone" stall, which is all about natural hazards, has run at the fair, and it had more visitors than ever - around 4,500 visitors according to the Museum staff.
The stall itself and all activities were all designed by SoGE staff, including a brand new poster and (very successful) activity on flooding from Andres Payo. The stall was co-organized with the Department of Earth Sciences, and also manned by volunteers from Earth Sciences and elsewhere.
