Sixth Form Science Seminars
This week we launched our Sixth Form Science Seminar Series with a superb talk from Dr Ruth Thompson, Department of Oncology and Metabolism, University of Sheffield Medical School.
This is our 5th year providing a series of Science talks from research scientists, where our students get to experience University style learning in our New Hall “Lecture Theatre”. The talks stretch the students’ knowledge of science where they apply the principles of A-Level to beyond the specification learning to follow and discuss cutting edge research, they also benefit from the listening to a diversity of speakers from an array of careers in science research. These talks often inspire our students to pursue a career in science research, it is great to hear from our alumni who are now embarking on these careers, we look forward to the day where we can invite one of our alumni to talk about their research in the theatre where it all began!
