First year Biology students at Cronton Sixth Form College had the opportunity to demonstrate problem solving techniques outside of the classroom and enjoy outdoor activities during an exciting residential trip to the Conway Centre in Anglesey.
Over the three days the young scientists were able to carry out a wide range of research techniques on beaches, rivers and quarry areas which benefited the ecology and conservation modules of the A Level Biology course.
The students also took part in paddle boarding, canoeing down the Menai Strait, via ferrata climbing and spent time socialising around the campfire during the evenings which created an educational and fun experience overall.
Ruth Mills, Biology Tutor at Cronton Sixth Form said “The trip was a huge success and all the students thoroughly enjoyed it. The residential helped to enhance the delivery of the ecology and conservation aspect of the A Level course and gave the students the opportunity to carry out techniques and analytical work not normally available within the classroom environment.”
