Educational resources

The produced educational resources aim to disseminate geological knowledge to non-specialized audiences, a challenge that is mainly due to the difficulty in translating and interpreting the physical environment in a logical and interactive way.

It is essential that geological information be disseminated according to a posture distinct from that used to disseminate purely scientific information.
