Geography Field Trip to Eco Adventure Ireland

The Geography field trip took place on Monday 22nd of September at Eco Adventure Ireland in Knockree, County Wicklow. Students completed this investigation as it is worth 20% of their overall mark in the Leaving Certificate geography exam. Many tests were carried out on the river including Cross Sectional Area, Velocity and Discharge, Bedload Analysis, Hydraulic Radius and River Gradient. Students are currently writing up their booklets which will be examined at next years Leaving Certificate Exams. Best of luck to all students involved.
