On Monday the Sixth Year Geography students travelled to Kippure, Co. Wicklow to carry out experiments in the river Liffey for their Leaving Certificate Geography Project. Despite some showers in the morning the weather held out for the rest of the day. Some of the experiments carried out were: 'Calculating the Velocity of the river', 'Calculating the Slope of the River' and 'Analysing the Bedload'. The project will be worth points for their final Leaving Certificate Geography exam.
