A donation from the Sirius Minerals Foundation has enabled Scarborough Sixth Form College to purchase a Leica polarising light microscope for A-Level geology.

Representatives from the company visited the college on Thursday 24 May to present the new microscope and give a demonstration to students and staff.

Sara Metcalf, geology teacher at the college, said: “We are very excited at the prospect of using this piece of kit as it will really enhance the students’ learning.”
