As the worst summer storm for 50 years arrived at Bodmin Moor, 30 Penwith College Geography, Environmental Studies and Biology students arrived to collect vital data for their coursework. The students spent three days camping at South Penquite Farm and studied the microclimate of Rough Tor and the invertebrate populations of a local river. The wind reached gusts of 30 miles an hour, but the students were extremely resilient and approached the activities with great enthusiasm. The data has been used by the Geography students to produce their A2 coursework based upon upland microclimates. The students also enjoyed cooking on open fires and some very impressive meals were produced!
