Girls into Geoscience – Ireland will return in November this year! We may be able to host the event in person, but it is also likely that we may have to hold the event virtually. This depends on government advice surrounding the COVID-19 situation. Until we are able to announce any more details, we would like your help! Do you have any ideas or suggestions for us?

Learn more about geoscience, field work and life as a geology student!
Covering everything from rock types, to fieldwork, to life as a geoscientist, this fantastic video is a brilliant introduction for anyone interested in studying the geosciences! The video was created by a team including iCRAG postdoctoral researcher Anna Bidgood and produced by Eleni Wood. During their undergraduate degree, the team undertook a mapping project in Greenland. Surrounded by glaciers, fjords and some amazing wildlife the four students investigated the geology of a 15km squared area. Watch the video to find out what they got up to on their travels!
