The Geobus is an educational outreach programme that supports Earth Science teaching in secondary schools throughout Scotland by providing resources that are not readily available in schools. Due to the lack of earth science education in Scotland and the further loss of Higher Geology in 2015 the GeoBus was set up to give students the chance to experience real research, using professional equipment, and give them a glimpse of the wide range of careers in earth sciences.
The initiative is sponsored by seven organisations and businesses including Shell, The University of St Andrews and the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC).
At the heart of this initiative is the passion to inspire young learners to consider careers related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects and become a bridge between schools, universities, research councils and employers.
