Climate Change Lectures

On Wednesday 20th February pupils from years 10, 11, 12 and 13 had the opportunity to listen to a  series of lectures and experiments on climate change. These were delivered by Cardiff University’s School of Earth and Ocean Sciences.
Professor Ian Hall

The aim of the sessions was to broaden the students' understanding of climate change and give them a flavour of what they can expect if they study Earth Sciences at university.

Leading the lectures was Professor Ian Hall, a prominent scientist at the forefront of research into climate change and Deputy Head of the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences. During his talks he discussed the evidence to show climate change was taking place, the effects that climate change would have and finally how we can either adapt or mitigate to deal with the problems of climate change.

The feedback from the students was very positive and they all commented on how interesting the lectures were. In the future the school hopes to take further advantage of our links with Cardiff University especially in the field of sustainable development.
We would like to thank Professor Hall and his team for generously giving up their time to come into school and Dr Jeanette Reis for helping to make the day possible.
