How to attend:

Girls into Geoscience - Ireland is a free programme to introduce female school (secondary cycle) and university students to the geosciences. It is run by EOS, iCRAG, IAWG and Geological Survey Ireland.

This year's theme is 'Earth's Changing Climate', and we will explore this through exciting workshops,  interesting talks and an even more exciting fieldtrip! The fieldtrip will take place on the 02 November, two weeks before the event day on 16 November.

Both the field trip and the event day are completely free, and you don't need to attend both, but please remember to register via Eventbrite
