What do Gapforce geography school trips involve?
Although any location we offer is of value to geography school trips, several of our destinations particularly lend themselves to schools looking to take their pupils on a voyage of discovery.
In the past, Gapforce volunteers have visited Morocco to study desertification and the impact that life on the margins has on the culture of the peoples who call it home. Their experience has involved breathtaking scenery against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and a privileged insight into the lives of nomadic Moroccan tribes.
Iceland is also a popular destination for geography school trips, offering pupils the chance to visit its many volcanoes for the purpose of studying geothermal activity and plate tectonics and marvel at its diverse animals, birds and plant life.
What are the benefits of Gapforce geography school trips?
While all overseas trips with Gapforce will inevitably incorporate a degree of geography related learning, pupils will gain the most benefit from those designed for this fascinating subject.
On our specifically designed geography school trips we aim to give our young volunteers a broader understanding of the world. We provide pupils with ample opportunities to study and experience the earth and its inhabitants, both human and animal, as well as the complex geological systems that dictate its landscape and weather.
