ALTON TOWERS TRIP

21 APR 2017

On Friday, 31 March 2017 two coaches full of budding young mathematicians plucked up the courage to attend Dumfries Academy’s annual Alton Towers’ trip. The attending pupils had been applying their mathematical knowledge and understanding throughout the year to solve challenging scenarios set within the Alton Towers Resort, especially focusing on Finance, Resource Management and the relationship between Distance, Speed and Time. So their journey began at 5.30am, and after an entertaining bus journey the pupils enjoyed seven hours of fun packed adventures in one of Britain’s greatest theme parks. After another entertaining bus journey home they made it back to the Academy for 10.00pm and all agreed it was a fantastic way to ‘kick start’ the Easter holidays!
