Huddersfield University Visit

In Homepage News by Salendine Nook

Year 10 geography students visited Huddersfield University. They took part in a ‘university style’ lecture on coastal erosion and management, given by Dr Thomas Smith. They then carried out an experiment in the laboratory to assess how wave action affected the profile of a beach, and how coastal management offered protection. Students also got a glimpse into university life through a student guided tour around the campus, then day ended with a “why study geography?” lecture, given by Dr Ryan Wilson. The day gave students a real insight into life beyond school, including how geography can be used in the world of work. All the students behaved impeccably and were a real credit to our school.
