Earth Science Week

Earth Science Week encourages the understanding and promotion of earth science. A series of educational programmes are being held in Tobago to engage students and others in discovering the earth sciences, deepening their understanding of the interactions of earth’s systems.

Earth science or Geoscience is an all-embracing term referring to the fields of science dealing with planet Earth, such as geology and ecology. Earth Science Week is being celebrated worldwide from October 12-18. The 2014 theme is “Earth’s Connected Systems.”

On Tuesday (14 October 2014) persons can visit the Earth Science Display and Student Exhibition at the Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) building, Fairfield Complex.

The mobile exhibit was located at the Signal Hill Secondary School on Monday and will move to the Charlottesville Library on Wednesday and Thursday. On the final day (17 October), there will be a tsunami drill at Store Bay from 9 a.m. to noon. Earth Science Week 2014 is a collaboration between the Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) and the University of the West Indies (UWI) Seismic Research Centre.
