What is the Planet Earth Zone?

The Planet Earth Zone is an online STEM enrichment activity focused on environmental science and geology. It is designed to work alongside this year’s Royal Institution CHRISTMAS LECTURES, Planet Earth: A User’s Guide.

Students will connect with a range of scientists and experts including geologists, environmental scientists, physicists and more. The Planet Earth Zone will also feature some of the contributors to the Lectures.
