Seequent knows how important the study of earth-related sciences is to shape a better future for our planet. With dwindling interest from the younger digital native generation, widespread defunding, and departmental cuts, it is imperative the geoscience community respond rapidly and holistically with a digital-first mindset. That's why Seequent, as a world-leading, integrated subsurface software company are committed to investing in Visible Geology, proffering a revolutionary web-based application that is free and accessible to all.

Visible Geology helps students grasp fundamental geological concepts in a captivating and fun, digital environment. Move beyond traditional 2D and paper-based methods, and empower students with immersive 3D modelling, collaborative classroom features, and digitised stereonets unlike anything you’ve seen before.

For educators, Visible Geology’s simple, intuitive interface makes it’s effortless to modernize teaching practices and integrate into your curriculum. Plus, it’s fun – you’ll enjoy exploring topographies, intrusions, cross-sections, drill holes, and even stereonets just as much as your students.

In this presentation, I will introduce and demonstrate the Visible Geology application, showcasing several key features and workflows. I will share information and resources for the audience to not only avail of themselves but for them to contribute, add and evolve. I will present them with the opportunity to become a part of the effort to collaborate, strategize and advance geoscientific education in the most modern and exciting way.
