For two weeks at the beginning of July I got the opportunity to meet a whole bunch of interesting people at the British Geological Survey and speak with them about what they do, why they enjoy it and why it’s interesting. It’s been a great opportunity for me to geek out at all the amazing things the BGS is doing and the brilliant people who work there.
Here is the third post on the amazing Peter Hobbs, a civil engineer who helped revolutionize the way the BGS works today, and invented some nifty new equipment along the way!! Check out the post here.

It’s a Science Festival!!!
This year, for the first time, I attended the Cheltenham Science Festival as a tourist. And it was great!! I was particularly pleased to see how much geoscience there was there, and had a number of great chats with scientists and engineers on the value of the festival and of the work or research that they were doing. As a quick snapshot, here are a few of my favourite things from the festival…
Giant molecular models
For some common materials as well as uncommon ones
Fabulous women engineers engaging future engineers….
Even rooocckkks from spaaaaaaceeee!
All signs lead to science!
