17/11/2017 WORKSHOP EXPERIENCE FOR A LEVEL GEOGRAPHERS

Four A-Level Geography students attended a workshop in collaboration with QUB and the GA (Geographic Society NI) on Thursday 12th October.  The event, entitled ‘From Dusk til Dawn’, saw the students meet at 7.36am (sunrise) for  breakfast in the David Keir  building, followed by field visits and a walking tour of Belfast, concluding with pizza at 18.32pm (dusk).  The programme was hosted by experts from QUB and relates directly to the A-level curriculum.

The programme focused on:
• The evolution of Belfast and its current trends;
• Physical, social and economic challenges of a divided city;
• Challenges of the inner city, including economic and social deprivation; and
• Urbanisation

The four students were Abigail McBroom, Anna Morrison, Nicole Kelly and Emma McLaughlin.
