Natural disasters form a natural and social science perspective, 12-18 October

As part of a one semester Natural Science Specialization course a group of students from the upper secondary school, Värmdö Gymnasium, visited NEO in October 12-18. The specialization course aimed at third year students attending the natural science programme with a global perspective, and the course theme was Natural disasters form a natural- and social science perspective”. The visit to NEO was highly anticipated, and the week included visits to geological, biological as well as historical sights of interest. The purpose of the week was to give the students more understanding of how the landscape is shaped through geological processes and what effect these processes have on biological systems.
