Get into Geoscience is proud to announce the launch of a new strand to its programming! This is the opportunity to organise a career talk with a number of inspirational geoscientists across the island of Ireland!

How does it work?

Below you'll find a 'menu' of our geoscience experts who would love to come and talk to you or your class about their careers. Simply click on a potential speaker to read more about them, or peruse the full list of bios and then contact us to set up a talk from one or more of our fab line up!

The talks will be organised at a time and in a place that suits you and the speaker(s). If your speaker is local to you, they may be able to come and speak at your school/public event. If not, this will be set up virtually. In person talks will be arranged subject to the current government COVID policies.
