[#CampusBulletin] Reach for the Summit in the 9th National Geology Congress

Aiming to rise above the challenges the online setup poses, UP Geological Society (UP GeoSoc) continues to take up space in the virtual arena with the 9th installment of the National Geology Congress (NGC). Promoting the geosciences and its relevance to the society, NGC shifts its focus to bridge the gap between the public and the scientific knowledge. Mark your calendars as NGC webinars will take place on April 2, 8, and 23, 2022 via Zoom and Facebook Live.

Even with the predicaments brought upon the pandemic, UP GeoSoc continues to uphold the importance of scientific knowledge in the country. With over registered 1,000 participants and 10,000 Facebook Live viewers last year, UP GeoSoc prepared a lot more for this year! Calling all teachers, high school students, geosciences major, and earth science enthusiasts, NGC brings you:


Teaching the wonders of the Earth in an online setup is definitely a difficult task to take. With this, UP GeoSoc hopes to be of a helping hand to earth science teachers through ESTW, a 1-day webinar assisting teachers across the country with the supplementary knowledge on how to teach Earth Science in the K-12 curriculum. With the current setup, this year’s theme “𝗗𝗿𝗼𝗽, 𝗖𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗟𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗻: 𝗚𝗲𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗛𝗮𝘇𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀, 𝗗𝗶𝘀𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗥𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗥𝗲𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀“ will delve on geological hazards and their examples in the Philippines, an introduction to Hazard Hunter PH, and the basics of Google Earth.
