Smart Exploration gives great importance to civil society engagement and inspiring young generations.
Two high schools were visited and 60 students had hands-on experience during 3D seismic survey in the forests of Ludkiva.
The students were briefed about the challenges of raw materials and mineral exploration and how EU and EU funded projects address the issues for a better and sustainable future.
Then students were given field demonstrations and explained how different aspects of a 3D seismic work come together and what kind of knowledge and experience is needed for such survey. The students had the opportunity to lay cables, plant geophones and create their own seismic source by a synchronised jump and seeing the results in the recording truck.
