Students will investigate the causes of flooding on a named river basin considering the geology, land cover and shape of the drainage basin (the bification ratio). Students will visit the river and measure the impacts associated with flood events in the town. A visit to a Flood Alleviation Scheme will allow students to observe how river catchments may be managed.

Small Group or Individual Student Days are designed to bring together individual students, home schooled students, schools with small class sizes, or students that were unable to attend a residential or alternative trip. By bringing groups together we aim to keep the overall costs lower, and you do not incur our minimum daily fee. This offer is restricted to no more than 8 pupils from any one school per course, and students must be accompanied. Due to safeguarding reasons we are unable to let adult learners attend these courses.

Example Timetable

This course usually runs from 9.30am – 3.30pm, but times can be adjusted to suit your group and travel plans. During your visit you will be welcome to the centre and given an appropriate health and safety briefing. Your session will start with an introduction to the day, aims and objectives. Throughout the day we will undertake fieldwork, collecting data appropriate to the topic. We will break for lunch, before continuing with our fieldwork. Depending on the day and the specific times of your visit we may include some data presentation and analysis and we will end the day with a summary including drawing conclusions and limitations. Please note that specific activities for your group are subject to change. We go out in all weathers and seasons and will tailor the content of the day accordingly.
