Spring 2018: Day 2
What an action-packed first full day here in Cambridge! The day started off with a continental breakfast in Reach Hall followed by the first subject supervision classes. Highlights from today’s first classes included key concepts in wellbeing science in Psychology, analysing the ‘DaVinci’ code in Maths & Computer Sciences, and studying the cardiovascular system in Life Sciences & Medicine. The students seemed to enjoy their first foray into this unique style of teaching, and were aided by our enthusiastic and experienced teaching team.
Lunch was enjoyed nearby, before all the students joined together for a debating session held in the famous Cambridge Union Society building – home to the oldest debating society in the world since 1815 (https://www.cus.org/). Our Reach Cambridge students stood and debated where many world famous orators have addressed their audience – including Winston Churchill and the current Dalai Lama. The students were trained, encouraged and prepared to debate two hot topics: Reality TV and Nuclear Weapons. After putting forward all their arguments on both sides, the rest of the students had to ‘vote with their feet’ and walk through the NOES or AYES door to indicate their stance. Everyone did an incredible job and received high praise from the Director of Curriculum and guest debating tutor.
Students then dodged (almost!) the April showers to walk home and prepare for their amazing Formal Hall dinner at Christ’s College this evening. The menu included a traditional roast chicken dinner and a trio of chocolate desserts – one chocolate creation was even shaped like a swan!
Thursday will start off with a traditional cooked English breakfast in a nearby restaurant and more subject classes. Tune in tomorrow for more news on this amazing programme!
