GeoBus for the Security of Supply of Mineral Resources programme

16 March 2017

NERC is funding 'GeoBus' to support the engagement of industry and the public with the Security of Supply of Mineral Resources programme (SoS Minerals).

The SoS Minerals GeoBus will be run by the team at University of St Andrews who developed the original 'GeoBus' as an educational outreach project in 2012. This provided educational materials to support Earth science teaching in schools and worked to highlight careers in Earth science by providing a bridge between industry, higher education institutions and schools.

On SoS Minerals, GeoBus will work with researchers from the programme's four projects to co-ordinate industry and public engagement through organising industry workshops and exhibitions at science festivals. The intention is to incorporate the programme's research outcomes into materials for the workshops and exhibits that can then be re-used as educational resources within universities.

More information about SoS Minerals and the four projects is available on the SoS Minerals website - external link website.
