Year 10 trip to the Royal Geographical Society
At the end of January a small group of Year 10 geographers joined some students from Alton College on a trip to the Royal Geographical Society in London. They were attending the RGS event “Bridging the gap” which aims to replicate a ‘university geography’ experience with seminars and speakers. A taste of university.
There was a terrific lecture by a leading climate change historian. Other highlights included information on using leeches to predict the weather and the story of a man who died trying to dive into the frozen Thames.
The students particularly enjoyed taking in the sights and sounds of London - trekking across Hyde Park in search of the illusive entrance to the RGS!
Look out for more “mini fieldtrips” in the future
