Education

An education package suitable for primary school age pupils has been created that is interactive and inclusive for all abilities. Two education animations; one for primary schools the other suitable for secondary schools are available on our YouTube channel. GEL has recognised that career advice from an early age is important and has supported the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Careers Hub and the STEM initiative.

We have also provided a number of local schools and colleges with a Raspberry Shake seismometer. These devices provide real-time monitoring of global and local seismic activity, bringing geography, geology, computer science and physics to life. This network of seismometers has provided an exciting link between industry, schools and citizen scientists, getting people talking about our living planet and the potential for geothermal energy in the UK. We hope this work continues to inspire the next generation of geoscientists in Cornwall!

If you’re interested in more information about the Raspberry Shake Project, please take a look at this article on the Raspberry Shake blog, or you can contact us directly to find out how your school could get involved.
