Are you interested in undertaking a scientific expedition or field research project?
The Society’s annual Explore weekend is fast approaching and, with over 90 leading field scientists and explorers present, this is an unmissable opportunity to gain advice, inspiration and contacts for your own research project or expedition.
Whether you have a fully-fledged plan and are ready to set off, have the beginnings of an idea, or aren’t entirely sure what you want to do, Explore 2018 is the place to be. Last year’s Land Rover Bursary recipient, explorer and geography teacher, Fearghal O’Nuallain will kick off the weekend talking about his expedition experiences and why he believes exploration can help us learn about both ourselves and the world around us.
A variety of specialist workshops covering a range of topics will take place throughout the weekend, from planning research projects and communicating your discoveries, to the logistics of working in a range of environments and the field research skills you will need. Plus, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to pick up top tips and ask questions – whatever your query, someone at Explore will be able to help.
This year’s speakers include TV presenter Paul Rose; Senior Lecturer in marine biology at Exeter University Ceri Lewis; filmmaker, blogger and entrepreneur Tom Allen; writer, poet and land artist Harriet Fraser; and conservation scientist and science communicator James Borrell, among many others.
Explore 2018 takes place from 9 to 11 November at the Society and is open to all.
Tickets are on sale now and start at £90. Early Bird discounts end on 15 October 2018.
