On Saturday 16th February Geology students attended the annual Herdman Symposium at Liverpool University.

Geologists from around the country (and the world) gathered to attended talks on volcanoes, plant fossils, and the latest findings on Mars.

The students involved also had a tour of the University's Earth Science Department and the opportunity to chat to the experts.
