This years ‘Girls into Geoscience’ event was held at Plymouth University on the 4th July. The morning saw talks from Sarah Boulton of Plymouth University, Claire Jennings of AquaGeo, Kathryn Hadler of Imperial CSM and Michelle Harris of Plymouth University. During the afternoon there were four workshops to introduce the types of subjects and skills that the students may experience at university. These included: Faults in Google Earth (GIS), Microfossils and Climate, Reconstructing Geological Time and Planetary Geology: interplanetary fieldwork.
Here are some photos from the day!
