A Level Geography Students visit Snowdonia
AS Level Geography students visited Snowdonia to prepare themselves for their Unit 2 examination ‘Crowded Coasts and Unequal Spaces’. They left Invicta on Sunday, 9 March, arriving at The Kent Mountain Centre filled with enthusiasm and ready to take on anything. They visited the Lleyn Peninsula on Monday and spent the day completing questionnaires, interviews, transects and learning many other field work techniques. In Abersoch, Criccieth and Pwllheli they studied both erosion and the recent performance of flood defences. The following day they visited Caernarfon to investigate social and economic deprivation. Further days included a visit to Anglesey to look at strategies aiming to improve the quality of life in rural areas and tourist attractions such as Parys Mountain Copper Mine and Amwlch Port and Heritage Centre. The students were excellent ambassadors for Invicta, working very hard and managing to fit in outdoor activity sessions such as climbing Snowdon, gorge walking , rock climbing and canoeing. Thank you to the Geography Department for taking the students on this visit.
