Woodroffe Geology Rap Project
 
With Toyin Solanke
 
As part of the Lyme Regis Fossil Festival April 2006, Woodroffe was invited to work with Geologist and performance artist Toyin Solanke to perform a poem explaining about the formation and structure of the Jurassic coast.  Twenty five year eight students were hand picked for their enthusiasm and talent to take part in a three day workshop, during which they learnt the poems and organised themselves into small groups. By the third day the students were word perfect and successfully performed their piece in front of a packed house in the Marine theatre in Lyme Regis.
As well as performing skills the students also learnt a lot about the scientific and geological background of their local coast line.
This project was sponsored by The Natural History Museum and Lyme Regis Development trust.
