The Challenge is now in its 7th year. Teams of A-level Science, Geology and Geography students compete in heats run by our Regional Groups, and go forward to a final at Burlington House. Find out how to enter.
Run annually and free to attend, the GEA offers UK teachers a great opportunity to understand how to teach geoscience if it is not their principal subject. Find out what the Class of 2016 got up to on 27–30 July.
The Education Committee was delighted to endorse Sue Fielding as the recipient of the Primary Science Teacher Award 2014.
The nomination related strongly to fieldwork so we were delighted to support this award which encourages outdoor practical work at primary level. Well done, Sue!
The Geological Society provides support to schools in the UK wishing to understand more about Earth Sciences, and how to incorporate examples within the National Curriculum.
Visit our new online resource, Geology Career Pathways, for updated guidance on when Geology is taught in school and where it overlaps with other subjects in the science and geography curriculum.
