The other 2 schools that were meant to attend the event could not get to Stormont because of the weather conditions so our Geology students were put under the spotlight and performed very well in the activities.
They lead high-growth companies in biosciences, cyber security, web services, mobile and enterprise software, based all over the US and Ireland.
The ‘speed dating’ portion of the event allowed land seekers to connect directly with landowners, share information about their farm, vision and goals, and trade contact information.
This mixer enabled farmers and landowners to meet and begin a dialogue that could lead to a future match.
The 4th Form Geology class took part in a ‘speed dating’ activity with MLAs and Northern Ireland Assembly researchers on Tuesday morning.
The pupils were teamed up with a Post-graduate ‘buddy’ from the Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology School in QUB.
