Education, Training & Outreach
OGG is rather a unique local geological society in that it provides a structured programme of workshops and seminars for its members and the wider community. GeoINTRO is our series, of workshops designed for those starting out in geology, the Earth and planetary sciences.
Our training and education programme offers a two-tier approach.
Our popular GeoINTRO workshops are designed to meet the needs of those just starting out in geology, the Earth and planetary sciences. No previous knowledge or skills are needed to take part in any of these workshops, quite simply we start at the beginning.
OGG’s seminar series, GeoPLUS, is designed for more experienced geologists, Earth and planetary scientists. These seminars are delivered by specialists and aim to deepen knowledge, broaden awareness and develop existing skills.
OGG delivers talks, training sessions and guided walks to members of the public throughout the county.
During 2014 alone, OGG members have given over 60 lectures to community groups and schools around Oxfordshire.
