Have you ever wondered how important science is as a career? Have you ever considered the importance of resource and energy consumption in today’s world? Geoscience (also referred to as Earth Science) is a broad and diverse world. The industries related to geoscience provide the raw materials that most of us cannot live without.

This is a new and exciting outreach event hosted by the APEGBC Vancouver Branch focusing on the many different facets of geology and geoscience within industry. This is an exceptional opportunity for science minded and curious individuals who have ever wondered what a career in geology may entail.

A series of participant tables will be on display to showcase the principal areas of geoscience/earth science within an informal and interactive tradeshow style setting. Everyone who is interested is invited to attend.

The event will be held over an extended lunch break period with engaging and interactive tasks to gauge your interest within the geological sciences. Plenty of rocks, geographical imagery, and computer displays will help ensure a fun and eventful day of learning.



The West Parkade is the closest parking lot to the Earth Sciences Building.
