On Wednesday 16th March, Mrs Willis and nine eager and forward thinking Yr 10 geographers attended an environmental sustainability day at the University of Exeter's Penryn campus. The students were able to tour the site's laboratories and talk to scientists about their research as well as participating in debates and activities.
Keagan, spokesman for the group said the following, 'The day was full of interesting facts and interactive sessions that made the experience a really useful source of innovative knowledge. We were able to learn about global sustainability issues as well as local issues in Cornwall such as pollution in the disused mines. We especially enjoyed learning about a research project into animal waste! I was able to test my public speaking and give feedback to an audience of over 50 students and scientists which was a great development opportunity. It was a great trip, that was full of laughter and learning and it was inspiring to be able to visit a university campus and meet real life scientists'.
