Summer Placement

S6 pupil Gavin Begg completed a 4 week placement through Nuffield Research at Glasgow University this summer. He was investigating the extent that British Glaciers reached the Isle of Scilly. He was involved in several field trips as part of the research and had the opportunity to work in a laboratory to investigate his findings. Gavin also worked closely with a Professor from the university and gained valuable experience, increasing his enthusiasm for Geography.

Last week, Gavin had the opportunity to display his research at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. He met with other students who worked with Nuffield Research this summer and was able to discuss his research.
