GEOSET Studios is the latest addition to the Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology initiative. This is an academic service provided free of charge for the entire university community. Our recording studio primarily targets outstanding educators and gives them a chance to showcase their work. The Studio in Dirac Library is primarily student-run, connected to the main GEOSET initiative with around 50 participating institutions. The Studio is free of charge for anyone to use to quickly produce and upload videos, with a mobile division that can record presentations anywhere on campus.

 

Our main objective is to expand on our cache of focused educational concepts created by our global community of teachers, researchers, undergraduate and post-graduate students, high school students, as well as K-12 / primary school children.
