Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Program 2: Leader 2017 - Day 7
‘University Advance’ Add-On days, meaning that a couple of students got to visit UCL and Imperial College London to get a taster of what it might be like to be a university student in the capital city. Highlights included chatting to a professional physicist, and meeting famous (and long-dead) philosopher Jeremy Bentham!In the leadership lecture tonight, students were split into five teams were assigned a leader. Each team elected a speaker and planned a one-minute presentation in defence of the leader they were assigned (those represented included Steve Jobs, Angela Merkel and Beyoncé). A fascinating debate followed, and many lessons were drawn about how to be a good leader. Of course, one of these lessons was the importance of leading by example: the workshop was run by Scott, our very own Program Co-Director! To round the night off after the amazing leadership lecture was the Reach-famous Ghost Tour. Scaretakers Tim and Amy transformed into ghoulish storytellers for an unusual tour around the streets and colleges of Cambridge, telling spooky local stories which have now become the stuff of legend. There was also a surprise appearance from several ghosts! Or they might have been supervisors wearing black bin liners. It’s hard to be sure… Students reported enjoying the ghost stories as well as the surprise phantom appearances. Another amazing day at Reach! SaveSave SaveSave SaveSaveSaveSave SaveSaveSaveSave
