TBT was specifically set up to promote and support the study of Earth Sciences in Primary and Secondary Schools. Being a relatively small private charity TBT needs to target its support to what it considers as ‘value for money’ initiatives. This currently includes:Supporting field trips – provision of that additional funding that would make a field trip viableSupporting new Earth Sciences initiativesSupporting projects that increase the public’s knowledge and understanding of the natural world
TBT’s mission is to promote the study of Earth Sciences in both Primary and Secondary Schools as a component part of the Science curriculum. In so doing, help create an increased knowledge, understanding and awareness of the natural world, its present condition and future challenges.
