A Level Climate Change Lectures.
Wednesday 16th December from 9:30am – 13:00pm
Plymouth University are accepting bookings for year 12 and 13s to attend our A Level Climate Change Lectures, which will take place on Wednesday 16th December.
Our planet is facing climate change unlike that witnessed previously by humanity, and will require skilled scientists to investigate and develop solutions to the problems caused by our warming planet.
With this in mind, we are inviting Sixth Form and College groups, as part of a class or individually, to join us virtually and find out more about the degrees offered through our School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and discover how they can become part of the solution to climate change.
As well as exploring the opportunity for further study, the students will also be attending inspirational talks delivered by our world leading experts. The talks will focus on key topics surrounding climate change, which are of relevance to A Level and BTEC curriculums in Geography, Geology and Environmental Sciences.
Currently confirmed talk titles are as follows, with more to be confirmed:
- ‘The impacts of retreating glaciers on water security: an emerging environmental issue’
- ‘Rapid climate change – How hot has the Earth been in the past?’
- ‘Flying and climate change: what’s your carbon footprint?’
Students will also be encouraged to engage in Q&A sessions after each talk to raise any questions that they may have.
The lectures will run on Wednesday 16th December from 9:30am – 13:00pm (with small breaks in between) and you will be sent a zoom link nearer the time to access the talks.
