Ambassador for the Royal Geographic Society
On Friday 23rd March and Wednesday 28th March, a wide selection of year 8 students had a presentation from an ambassador for the Royal Geographic Society (RGS). Students learnt why the guest speaker went down the path of studying geography and gave persuasive arguments towards studying geography as it appears all around us and has many transferable skills. Students were inspired by the trips the RGS speaker had done and learnt about geothermal power in Iceland and erosion on the Holderness coast. The students then went on to come up with ideas on how tectonic processes can lead to earthquakes and the associated problems this can bring. Students finished the session by presenting back to the group a quick little rhyme, rap or song on what they know about tectonic activities.
