Field Studies Council courses in association with Discover the World

Down to London today to a Hodder Hazards Conference, and met Helen from Discover the World again. We've bumped into each other at lots of events over the years.
She told me that Discover the World Education and the Field Studies Council have joined forces to offer courses for the new specifications, in the awesome surroundings of Iceland.



Discover the World Education is proud to work in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC) to offer a brand new, exclusive range of geography and science fieldwork opportunities in Iceland.
From October 2017, you can choose from a range of fieldwork courses designed, developed and delivered by FSC tutors which will engage your students via experiential learning and which directly support the new geography and science specifications being taught from September 2016.
Students will have the opportunity to develop investigative and practical skills and to evaluate and analyse their data, improving critical thinking skills and helping to fulfil the new requirements for practical work.
The Courses
The FSC fieldwork courses each last between two and four hours, depending on your requirements, and have been designed to be easily incorporated into a typical geography or science itinerary, providing additional educational value and allowing you to further enhance your students’ experience.
The courses are available exclusively to groups who book a Discover the World school trip, and are available in autumn 2017 and spring 2018 at a number of sites across Iceland.
Dates:
15 – 26 October 2017 
3 – 12 April 2018
Sites:
Horticultural University of Iceland, Hveragerdi
Hveragerdi Geothermal Park, Hveragerdi
Reykjanes peninsula
Reykjavik city


If you book on a Discover the World trip, you can now take a course along the way...
