Seismic Schools Conference
Around 100 Year 10 and 11 students from three local schools came to the recent Seismic Schools Conference, which began with a morning session of igneous petrology using new microscopes.
In the afternoon students from Farnley (Pudsey) and St Aiden's (Harrogate) attended a lecture by Professor Neuberg on the ongoing research on active volcanoes, students from Cockburn students undertook a resource economics exercise run by Dave Bond. The feedback from the students was excellent.
This is one of a number of such days over the next few months as part of the final phase of the Seismic Schools project, a three-year outreach programmes funded by the DCFS/DFE. So far, 15 schools have been involved in the project and we are actively looking for funding to continue and expand our programme building partnerships with local schools.
