George Cussons with Mike WindleGeorge Cussons, our latest Intern, has just completed his placement with the Geology Trust. For a year he has been part of the team and left his mark. His most significant contribution has been to Geonauts®. As the third member of our volunteer marketing team, George inspired the concept of crowdfunding and played a major role in the creation of our site "Can I be a Geonaut?" by producing the video at the core of the site

He has his own funding page as part of our overall effort to raise £15,000 to provide schools with our interactive science learning workshops. Please go and have a look and support your Geology Trust. You can also donate by sending us a cheque or put your spare change in our moneybox at the Dinosaur & Fossil Museum in Robin Hood's Bay and Trust events. We will add your contribution to George's page.

George at a Geonauts sessionHe has become a staunch supporter of our Geonaut programme in Primary Schools by shadowing Mike Windle (Geonaut 1) at Kildwick Primary School and at the Primary Science Network Session across North Yorkshire and taking on the role of Lewis Hunton for a Victorian Rock & Fossil Roadsow at Ormeby Hall.

George really pulled his weight, researching, commenting on our website and social media activities, brainstorming, his title was chosen for our latest application to the Heritage Lottery Fund "Exploring Forgotten Landscapes". He has been instrumental in the Trust being on Twitter and more active on social media.

He has learnt a lot, improved his field & recording skills, his writing and communications and his time management. He has challenged, made his own mind up, made notes and valuable contributions at crucial meetings and has become a top Geonaut himself. We hope he is the first of many interns from Coventry University and wish him the best for the future.

Thank you George!
