Girls into Geoscience (GiG) is becoming more than just an event. It has become a network, supporting women in geology and those aspiring to be. Get involved!
This exciting event will introduce female A level students to the Earth sciences and demonstrate the world of careers open to Earth science graduates today.
We are excited to announce Girls into Geoscience 2022 will be going ahead face to face this year for the first time since 2019! This year's two-day event will take place on 4–5 July with a field trip day on the 4th followed by a talks and workshop day on the 5th at the University of Plymouth. Students and teachers are welcome to join us for either of the days or both.
BookingsPlease note that places are now full for this event. However, girls and schools wishing to make bookings are welcome to fill in the form on the above link to go on our waiting list should places become available.
We will be running our optional field trip to the fantastic coastal location of Bovisand nearby to Plymouth (see Field trip flyer above) from 9:30–16:00 on 4 July. Places are limited on this field trip and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
On the evening of 4 July we invite our attendees to join us for a FREE icebreaker meal on Plymouth’s historic Barbican. Meet and chat with fellow attendees, speakers and staff in a friendly relaxed environment, overlooking the sea. More info to come!
Careers and workshop day
On 5 July we will be running our popular careers and workshop day. Find out about the range of careers geoscience can lead to, and get hands on with different aspects of geoscience, learning what it is like to study the geosciences at university.
