International Geological Congress, Oslo

Louise Sutherland (from the learning team) and I have just come back from Oslo where we presented a poster at the International Geological Congress.

Inspiring A-level geology students with museum collections

Inspiring A-level geology students with museum collections

The poster showed the work we have done in developing the A-level geology workshops with a teacher from Greenhead College, Huddersfield.

The congress was a fantastic opportunity to meet delegates from around the world and gain ideas of how to inspire people with geology. We made some useful contacts and raised the profile of the museum.

Two of the sessions at the conference were focused on education. Talks ranged from the status of geology education in developing countries to case studies of geology workshops. A talk on the Earth Learning Idea website was particularly useful for ideas for home geology experiments.
