UK Storms October 2013 - Collaboration Project

Below is an opportunity to collaborate on a case study project for any Bedford School Geographer, or indeed anyone else there. Just Click a space on the wall and post your most interesting information about the UK storms. We challenge you to be the most interesting. Mr Gracie will provide some edible German confectionery to the most interesting post.

We think this format may have the power to do some quite special collaborative work too, so please do contribute if you find anything interesting... You can click on the wall below to post or open it in a new window with this link:

Open Day Guerilla Investigation

There will be more pedestrian activity closest to the main school building.

Synchronised 5 min pedestrian count at 9.40am at varying distances from school.
Pragmatically sampled at locations known to be on the tour path.
Graphical Evidence of what location looks like.

There is no clear correlation of results. The centre of school was only the second highest result. However, being near the car park means we could remove the top result as an anomaly. It is more than twice the size of the next largest result. If this was removed, the centre of school would be the highest result, but from a set of 3 points.

Therefore, we cannot support our hypothesis with this data. If we include the car park result, then we can actually disprove it.

We only took a 5 minute period early on the Open day, at only 4 locations. This did not allow us an even spread of the school site and removes the temporal factor that may see pockets of people ebb and flow at sites during a day.
