Virtual field trip
The first resource we have on show is our virtual field trip to Siccar Point led by Dr Amanda Owen. This resource is aimed at 15-18 year olds, introducing them into the world of field work, how we interpret ancient environments, and how we record data in the field. There are a series of short (5-10 minutes) Youtube videos, links for which can be found in the document.
The second, an introduction to geoscience thinking, is a presentation by Dr Hannah Mathers. Use online interfaces to solve Scottish geo-mysteries – what can lift boulders to the top of a mountain, why do rivers disappear and what decides where you site a graveyard?
Google Earth tour
Use Google Earth to fly through Glasgow and the surrounds finding out about geo-issues, fieldwork sites and the relationship between Earth Science and society. Photos and site guides give you a virtual fieldtrip experience.
