This exciting two day event, with optional field trip to see the fantastic local geology, will introduce female A level students to the Earth sciences and demonstrate the world of careers open to Earth science graduates today.
With seminars from women working in geology and hands on workshops on a range of geological topics, this year’s Girls into Geoscience event isn’t one to miss.
Geology isn’t just for the boys!
