The British Geological Survey hosted its 13th British Science Week (BSW) event, between 17-21 March 2015, at its headquarters near Nottingham. The primary schools event runs over three days where the children participate in a carousel of hands-on science activities; about 750 children took part in 2015. This is followed by a family event on the second Saturday of BSW featuring BGS displays, talks, tours and lots of hands-on activities for children.

The British Geological Survey is the definitive source of landslide information in Great Britain. Landslides are shown on our geological maps and we maintain the National Landslide Database which has over 15 000 records of landslides in Great Britain. Information is gathered from surveys and reports or as part of our responsive work in Great Britain.
