Kendal schoolgirl swaps Kendal Green for Greenland
A FORMER Kendal schoolgirl has travelled to Greenland as part of her research at Oxford University.
Eleni Wood, 20, who attended Queen Katherine School, is visiting the vast country with three Earth Science classmates as part of the Royal Geographical Society-backed programme to produce detailed maps of the south-west of Greenland.
The six-week long project will be documented on film and on a blog.
The information will aid the ‘Education Through Expeditions’ programme which makes field science more accessible to schools.
Speaking before the trip, which began in late July, Eleni said: “I can’t wait to throw myself at the challenges.
“Through a short documentary of our trip I hope to share my experiences and inspire other young people to explore the world around them.”
