The Geological Society of London is the UK national society for geoscience, providing support to over 10,000 members in the UK and overseas. Founded in 1807, we are the oldest geological society in the world.
Following the Geological Society's first Earth Science Week (ESW) in 2011, we ran ESW 2012 from 15 – 19 October.
ESW 2012 was about encouraging people everywhere to explore the natural world and learn about the geosciences. In 2012 we highlighted some of the less well-known activities that geology can inspire; and promoted the resources that we offer and are available through other organisations that we work with.
Through our links with teachers and careers experts, we ran a daily blog; posting online lesson plans; highlighting careers in Earth science; and offering free presentations at the London Science Museum using their 'Science on a Sphere' facility (see below).
Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org about any aspect of Earth Science Week 2012.
Throughout the week, we posted features related to careers in the Earth scientists - from how to conduct field work to a trip to Mars!
