'AS' Study Day

Down to London earlier in the week, to take students to the Royal Geographical Society for their 'AS' Study Day. We've been attending this for a few years now, and I've presented at previous events of this kind. Train from Ely then underground, and a walk up Exhibition Road to the RGS.


We had sessions from friends old and new: rivers, coasts, energy, population and migration, along with some exam technique guidance.

At the same time, we were able to take in the current exhibition that is in the entrance foyer, and also a special entrance area lined with maps and books.

Enduring Eye is an exhibition of Hurley's wonderful images from Shackleton's 'Endurance' expedition. These are wonderful images, which have been rescanned from the original source, and reveal the efforts that were made to rescue the crew of the Endurance after it sank.

Keep an eye out for other teacher and student events at the RGS...

Made arrangements for an event later in the year where I'm speaking, and working with teachers at the RGS...
