Earth on the Edge ... Solutions from Students: Poster Competition

Earth on the Edge.....Solutions from Students: Poster Competition

In July 2011 thousands of scientists will meet in Melbourne to discuss the state of the Earth, including its climate and atmosphere, water resources and oceans, volcanoes and polar regions. The International Union of Geophysics and Geodesy General Assembly is one of the world's largest meetings of Earth scientists but they would also like to hear from students about their concerns for the Earth and possible solutions.

As part of the conference, all Australian students are invited to design and produce a poster exploring the theme 'Earth on the edge'. There are prizes available for 5 to 9 year olds, 10 to 14 year olds and those over 14.

Closing date: 6th May 2011
