Environmental and science education
The cornerstone of geoGata
No society can progress and prosper without knowledge. This premise is so clear to us that education was our starting, and the origin of what we are today. It was the main motivation and momentum that led us to launch the Geogata project. And undoubtedly, is in education and training where we pay more attention to provide an outstanding service.
Primary and secondary school
Since 2011 we offer interpretation of the natural environment, environmental education and scientific training adapted to students of all levels. We have developed projects focused on or to complement lesson plans in primary and secondary education, both within the ordinary course and as part of special occasions linked to exchange programs, study tours, cooperation projects and others. We are experts on using the aspects of natural heritage that are most suitable for educational purposes. Geology, ornithology, botany, meteorology, chemistry, among others, are fields in which we find countless arguments for environmental education and training.
We have given new impetus to our training programs designed for college students. Basically we design, plan and coordinate training trips of all kinds, like classic field trips for Earth and Environmental Sciences students, others designed especially for students from other branches of knowledge, including those related to Physical and Human Geography, as well as collaborative learning projects in which students leave a positive impact on the societies and natural communities in which they work. Finally, we are quite happy to serve U3A groups.
Given that, whatever the level of education, the experimentation has an increasingly weight in the transmission and assimilation of knowledge, geoGata has specialized in the design of specific products aimed at increasing the degree of manipulation and contact of the students with the medium as a central aspect for the development of environmental education and training activities. Our headquarters and natural laboratory is the Cabo de Gata - Níjar Nature Park, Biosphere Reserva and Geopark, but we're happy to plan your educational trips in all the Almería province as well as in Andalusia, South Spain.
