21st August – 25th August 2020
A residential for young people looking to improve their field skills and explore the options of a possible career in geoscience. Geology offers fascinating window into Earth’s deep past and the foundations of our most iconic landscapes, but can be slightly daunting to the uninitiated. Our course is designed to develop an appreciation of the basic skills and knowledge of earth science in a fun and supportive environment.
During the course we will explore the world class geological sites Cumbria has to offer, from the explosive volcanics to desert sandstones. You will learn how to describe and categorise rocks in the field and to use a geological notebook to record your observations. In the evening we will briefly set the day in context with fun, interactive sessions.
The course is suitable for a Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Residential.
