Introduction to Deep Time Session at Whitchurch and Ganarew Memorial Hall, Whitchurch, HR9 6DJ

Learn about our exciting new app and the geology around us.

The new app, is designed to encourage more people, especially young people, to get active and look at geology outside and learn more about how it underpins the landscape around them.  The apps cover two sites in Herefordshire: The Doward, in the Wye Valley and Olchon Valley near the Black Mountains and two sites in Worcestershire: Martley and the Lickey Hills.

We are looking for volunteers to come along and provide support when we take schools out to visit sites and when we are at public events.  You don’t need to know what an “app” is, or have experience with technology just lots of enthusiasm for our spectacular geology.  We don’t have dates for the school trips yet but if you are willing to help then please do let me know and I can contact you when I have more details.

You don’t need to know about or have used any apps, phones or tablets before and we will provide everything you need to learn more.  We will start with an indoor session at  Whitchurch and Ganarew Memorial Hall and then have a stroll up The Doward, to see the app in action.  To find out more about the project or to book a place then please contact me on e.andrews@worc.ac.uk
