The Geological Society is involved with education from primary level, through the keystages of the National Curriculum, to A-Levels.
The Challenge is now in its 5th 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 on 25 April 2016. Find out how to enter and download the rules.
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!
Free to attend, the GEA offers UK teachers a great opportunity to understand how to teach geoscience if it is not their principal subject.
Dates are now confirmed for the next GEA: 27–30 July 2016. More information available soon!
At the GSL we can provide support to schools in the UK wishing to understand more about Earth Sciences and how to incorporate examples within the National Curriculum.
