TECHFEST PUBLIC EVENT ABERDEEN SCOTLAND
2010, 2011, 2013 AND 2014.
COMPANY FOUNDED: 2002 IN ABERDEEN SCOTLAND NOW LOCATED IN CUMBRIA.
COMPANY AIMS: Presenting wonderful very 'hands on' Geology & Earth Science workshops with high quality resources to school classes. Workshops are various, flexible and with relevant content & activities linking to various curriculum based topics . Science, Geography and even several history topics are covered. Workshops also aim to achieve the curriculum outcomes. New workshops can be developed that link to curriculum changes.
Presenting high quality workshops and presentations structured for the public.
COMPANY NAME: Originates from Celtic and the 'Eld' from Icelandic. If 'Eld' is used in a context as a prefix in a word it means fire, volcano or eruption of. The exact meaning depends on rest of word.
CELELD ROCKS context is'Eldfell, this means Fire Mountain or Volcano.
CELELD ROCKS, ROCKS: Steven has collected Rocks and some Fossils & Minerals since he was very young. Steven has many wonderful samples of all types & many kinds mostly from walks & climbs along Coasts, River banks, Fells, Hills and Mountains throughout Britain. Steven has climbed most of Britains high Mountains and most of Britains extinct volcanoes.
The British Isles are globally renowned for having the largest variety of Rocks, Structures and Landforms for its size in comparison to anywhere on Earth.
Some Rocks have been collected from other parts of the World especially from climbs/hikes to active & dormant Volcanoes in Iceland, Italy and France. Also from hikes/climbs in Sweden, Norway and to the summits of several of the highest Alpine peaks in Switzerland.
Steven has climbed on Glaciers in the higher peaks of Europes Alps including the longest in Europe and some in Iceland.

ICELAND CONNECTION: Steven first climbed in 2002 the famous Eldfell Volcano on the island of Heimaey Iceland. An eruption from a fissure in January 1973 nearly destroyed the town but it survived and now thrives.
This Volcano is the middle photo at top of page.
Steven also experienced the Iceland 2010 Lava eruption from the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano 'very close up'. This Volcano then consequently exploded much ash grounding 100,000 flights across Europe and beyond. The ash even reached central Russia and North Africa. Steven climbed the volcano to summit caldera crater in July 2013. Other Icelandic volcanoes climbed include the famous Snaefellsjokull (Jules Verne included it in 'Journey to Centre of the Earth'), Hekla, Askja and August 2015 Icelands highest Volcano and Mountain on the Oraefajokull. This is part of Europes largest Ice sheet Vatnajokull. In 2015 the new lava flows from 2014-2015 eruption of Bardarbunga were visited.
2017: Laki Craters explored from the 1783-1784 eruption, largest lava eruption anywhere on Earth in last 1000 years. Return to Vatnajokull to study the glacial retreat. Return via climb up from Skogar to new Volcanoes by Eyjafjallajokull Steven experienced erupting in 2010. Also returned to Eldfell Volcano on Heimaey. Observed and studied changes to both.
Many Geothermal areas also explored near Reykjavik and in Highland Interior 2002-2017.
PRICES: School workshop costs are competitive but fair and take into account class sizes and number of class sessions.
The costs for related Science Events are somewhat more but also competitive.
A 2015 DISCLOSURE CERTIFICATE IS HELD.
