Girls into Geoscience, Dartmoor Fieldwork – 3rd July

Last week saw our ‘Girls into Geoscience’ event held at Plymouth University. This year was the first year we have introduced a fieldwork day prior to the event. We had 29 girls join us on Dartmoor for an introductory fieldwork day and here are some of the fantastic photos from the day!
