The GeoBus is a mobile outreach programme that brings free interactive Earth Science workshops into the classroom. From volcanoes to fossils, the workshops highlight the numerous and diverse links between Earth Science and the school curriculum.
The GeoBus moved to online-virtual delivery last September and is now on track to reach 10,000 students across the UK this academic year. Throughout the year it has continued to expand the available workshops to different topics and year groups and is showing no sign of slowing down with the introduction of a brand-new climate change and sea ice themed virtual workshop which has been created in collaboration with Dr Rosie Willatt and Dr Michel Tsamados from the Centre of Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) here in UCL Earth Sciences.
Students will experience the Arctic in 3D using the ever-popular GeoBus branded 3D glasses alongside captivating CPOM images of the Arctic landscape which have been transformed into anaglyph 3D images. The workshop will be run live via video call and cover key topics such as the greenhouse effect, the difference between weather and climate as well as why sea ice is so important and how scientists study it. The climate change virtual workshop is available to book now and as always, is completely free thanks to our sponsors.
