The British Geological Survey held an Open Day at its Environmental Science Centre in Keyworth on Saturday 27 June 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We planned a packed day illustrating the wide scope and applications of our research activities. Read a blog of the day.
There was something for rock lovers of all ages — from newbies to experienced earth scientists. Download the Open Day Poster
