Iain Stewart launched GeoBus on January 18th (2012) with an eruption caused by the de-pressurisation of a familiar fluid. Present with the enthusiastic Buckhaven pupils were Professor Peter Cawood (Earth Sciences, St Andrews), Russell Reekie (Maersk Oil), and Paul Herrington (Centrica). Photo courtesy of East Fife Mail.
GeoBus is available to visit all secondary schools in all educational authorities around Scotland, and will visit schools in northern England in 2013. 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.
