Welcome to the greatest week of the year, the week everybody has been waiting for with baited breath. Bigger than a big thing in a big box, gift-wrapped. Bigger than a big ice-cream with seven scoops, whipped cream, a flake and sprinkles. Earth Sciences Week is upon us. Rejoice!
No matter what the real size of Earth Sciences week its still a great time to get involved in the earth sciences, or plan a way to stay involved. There are lots of events coming up across Australia. Right here in Canberra there are competitions for geology photos, short films on a geology theme, and a night-time opening of the National Dinosaur Museum, focusing on Australia’s dinosaurs.
Plus, there is a Geology careers expo, open to both high-school and university students. So come and find out where a career in geology could really take you*.
Loads more stuff is happening across the country, and across the world.
Check out Geoscience Australia for more info!
* either somewhere fun, or somewhere with lots of cash, either way you win.
