GeoBus is a free educational outreach project for schools developed and run by the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at the University of St Andrews.
GeoBus is available to visit all secondary schools in all educational authorities around Scotland. Teaching packages cover broad areas of Earth science aimed at supporting STEM subject teaching generally, and highlighting career opportunities in Earth science and other STEM subjects.
- To support Earth Science teaching in secondary schools by providing resources that are not readily available to educators.
- To inspire young learners by including new research outcomes in the teaching packages, which at times will be presented by researchers.
- To provide a bridge between industry, HEIs, Research Councils, and schools to highlight career opportunities in geology specifically, and Earth sciences and STEM areas generally.
