Dangerous Science!

From Tuesday 9 July to Thursday 11 July, several of our students attended the University of Liverpool's 'Dangerous Science' summer school!

The event, now in its sixth year, is organised by the Faculty of Science and Engineering and it aims to raise awareness and aspirations towards higher education and highlight the career paths and opportunities open to someone who opts for a science based course at university.

The programme was designed to give young people a realistic taste of both the academic and social side of university life and encourage learners to consider the links between their own school curriculum, study at university and their future career choices.

The visiting students were able to tailor the programme to their own interests by choosing from six different academic tasters delivered by university academics. These options included computer science, earth and ocean sciences and electrical engineering.

In the evenings the students stayed at University Halls of Residence to give them a real taste of what it is like to be a student living independently away from home. There was a full social programme in the evenings to help the students feel relaxed and to make new friends.
