In the past few years, Camborne Science and Community College has built strong links with the Ritsumeikan High School in Japan, so it was with great anticipation that three of our students travelled all the way to the Shiga District near Kyoto in Japan last month. Their mission: to present a scientific study at an International Water Forum.
Heavy metal pollution is a big problem in Cornwall. Centuries of mining have left a legacy of damaged ecosystems so our students were determined to raise awareness on the matter. After several weeks of research and field trips, they presented their findings in the hope that others would learn about this issue. Their presentation was a great success and our students were praised for their work.
