Forum "Enseigner les Géosciences", Lille, Octobre 2018La convertion dans le manteau

One of the TIMEleSS PI’s gave a general lecture on Mantle Convection this week.

The French geological society meeting (Réunion des Sciences de la Terre) was held in Lille between Oct 22 and Oct 26, 2018, and included a workshop on Teaching Earth Science in High Schools dedicated to high school teachers in Northern France.

The workshop included a day of scientific presentations during which S. Merkel gave a class on Mantle Convection and a day of field trip. The workshop was also a nice and rare opportunity for high school teachers in Northern France to be in contact with international research in their region.
