University Pathways Students Tour Thames and Kings College London

UP1Five Year 9 students, who have been studying coastal zone management and the River Thames, took a boat trip up the river earlier this month to see the topic come to life.

The students have been studying this subject over eight weeks as part of Researchers in School University Pathways, a programme that supports a small group of pupils to increase their chances of attending a highly-selective university.

As a final reward for their success, and to get into the field to see the subjects covered in the classroom, the students travelled on the Thames Clipper from Woolwich Arsenal to Putney.

In West London they visited the WWT London Wetland Centre (pictured) to see a restored wetland habitat and all the animal life that it now supports.

After the wetlands centre the students visited the John B Thornes Laboratory (pictured below) in the Geography department at Kings College London (KCL).  Dr. Francis O’Shea and colleagues presented a programme on the work the lab does in sustainability, including water quality testing and analysis, river flow and hydrology modelling, and the equipment they have created in the lab to do their field studies using DT and ICT. The students also heard a fascinating presentation by PhD student Randa Kachef.

Students participating in the course include (pictured here) Ayopo, Tiarna, Iyobosa, Harrison and Abdulahi. We hope the students enjoyed the trip and congratulate them on their success in completing the course.
