The 2017 Great Geoadvent comes to an end!
It hardly seems a minute since we were celebrating trilobites named after The Beatles, analysing the rock content of rock music with surprising accuracy, chasing William Smith around Wales and decorating our Christmas trees with dinosaurs – but the Great Geoadvent is back!
We’re thrilled to announce the results of the 2017 Earth Science Week photography competition, ‘Our Restless Earth.’ The twelve winners, which will feature in our 2018 calendar, are currently on display at Burlington House. Chosen from over 130 entries, they feature geology from across the UK and Ireland – from limestone weathering in Gower to the dramatic landscape of the Giant’s Causeway.
The build up to this year’s Earth Science Week has already begun – which can only mean one thing. The return of the Earth Science Week photography competition!
The fourth Great Geobakeoff is finally concluded! It’s been another epic year, with more than 40 of you entering the competition, with a combined total of nearly 80 entries – huge thanks to everyone who took part!
The results of the National Schools Geology Challenge final quiz round!
A chance to try the quiz round from the National Schools Geology Challenge final for yourself!
On Wednesday 3rd May the Geological Society hosted the National Schools Geology Challenge and Early Career Geologist Award Finals at Burlington House. A total of seven different school teams and six early career geologists from across the UK battled it out to win the coveted geo trophies.
Easter is just over a week away, which can only mean one thing…the return of the glorious Great Geobakeoff! Yes, the Great British Bakeoff may be no more, but its geological counterpart has refused all lucrative offers and elected to continue uninterrupted by commercial breaks.
