Geocamp is the gateway to Geology field activities. It is a free access website for students and teachers that use field activities for teaching and learning. It can also be interesting for Earth Science enthusiasts interested in making regional discovering activities.
Geocamp appeared from the initiative of many teachers of Geology from several Catalan universities (UAB, UdG and UPC) that wanted to create multimedia software with didactic resources and information to make Geology field activities easier.
Geocamp was funded by the Ministry of Universities, Research and Information Society (DURSI) in 2002 official announcement of helps for the improvement of teaching quality projects in Catalan universities in the setting of the project titled ‘Optimització amb suport multimèdia de les pràctiques de camp en l’assignatura de Geologia’ (‘optimisation of geology field activities with multimedia software’.)
Geocamp has four different sections:
Geocamp is intended for university students of Geology subjects and field practical work. This gateway can also be useful for students of other levels only if their teachers make a selection and adapt the contents of the website for them.
Geocamp is open to all geologists and Natural Science teachers contribution. All contents, itineraries, links, etc. are permanently under construction. We invite you to help improving and make it grow to turn it into a useful tool for everyone. You can send your proposal or opinions to:
