Earth science: Inspiring the next generation of geologists

From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 7 June 2024

The number of students enrolling in the earth scientists is falling, according to data from numerous global geoscience institutes.

To try and counter that, Christchurch-based earth modelling company Seequent has developed Visible Geology - a free web application which uses 3D modelling to educate children about the ground under our feet including the Alpine Fault and White Island.

Seequent CEO Graham Grant says everyone at Seequent is passionate about inspiring the next generation of earth scientists.
