Girls into Geoscience is becoming more than just an event
It has become a network, supporting women in geology and those aspiring to be. Get involved!
This exciting two day event, with optional field trip to see the fantastic local geology in Torbay, will introduce female A level students to the Earth sciences and demonstrate the world of careers open to Earth science graduates today.
