Earth Science Ambassadors

The Geological Society are offering free Key Stage 2 workshops to schools across London. We have trained students from three top London universities to support teachers and show how interesting and inspiring Earth Sciences can be through fun demonstrations.

Our Earth Science Ambassadors will be available to deliver two curriculum-linked Key Stage 2 workshops.

Earth Sciences are taught across many subjects in the school curriculum, but are often not highlighted as their own subject. We want to inspire more young people to become Earth Scientists and let them know about the exciting career opportunities available to them.
