Bulletin 6: Useful resources & learning opportunities

This bulletin contains a round up of useful resources and learning opportunities. 

Since the Covid-19 crisis began we have created five 'The Meyler Campbell Guide To.." documents for you. In case you missed them, you can view them all below:

This week, we were inspired to move away from resources focusing on the current pandemic and to focus more on the opportunity for learning.  In case you missed it amongst the tide of pandemic-related articles we have all received lately, last month the Curiosity Mars Rover sent NASA the most detailed panoramic photo of Mars that we have ever seen. You can view this incredible image here.

So this week's guide is The Meyler Campbell Guide to Curiosity.
