After a hearty breakfast at Reach Hall, the students were excited to start their first full subject-specific day. Subjects on offer included Law, Psychology, Maths, Medical Sciences & Chemistry, Physics & Engineering and Politics & International Relations.
The teachers were ready and raring to go and had created some fantastic materials for their University-style teaching seminars. The small classes allowed the teachers to explain each point, focus on each student individually and facilitate detailed and informative discussions.
Highlights included a dissection and optical illusion in Medicine, special relativity in Physics, some passionate discussions about religion in Politics and analysing brain scans in Psychology.
And, to top it all off, most of the group managed to see Stephen Hawking in real life during their lunch break as he was in Cambridge for a conference. Exciting times!
After classes, students spent time on Jesus Green in the sunshine, getting involved in the sports on offer such as football and hanging out with friends after a challenging but engaging day of classes.
We then rounded off the day with a truly unforgettable Formal Hall at Downing College.
Formal Hall is a tradition offered in Cambridge Colleges, where students wear gowns and are served a decadent meal by candlelight in the presence of senior College academics and staff.
Our students didn’t need to wear gowns for the occasion but did get to soak up the magical and inspiring atmosphere of Downing College dining hall and enjoy a wonderful meal together. A real Cambridge experience!
After a wind-down and review of the day, the students retired to bed in preparation for another amazing and action-packed day tomorrow!
