The sunny Cambridge day started with morning classes
. From learning coding language Python in Computer Science
to combining Law
with literature, and discussing Harry Potter from a legal perspective. The Engineering
class finished off their bridges, while Psychology
moved straight to the exciting topic of Personality and Research Design. Some students also enjoyed Emergency Medicine
in their Taster classes
in the afternoon.

The students had the opportunity to get their own lunches afterwards followed by a little bit of free time
and more exploration of Cambridge. Back in college, today was the first day of sport
activities. Students had the opportunity to play many games such as football, basketball and tennis. However, the most popular game ended up being Rounders
, a traditional British bat-and-ball game – students got very into it and the amazing weather came out to play too! Fingers crossed it stays. Meanwhile, some other students chose to get creative with art and crafts
in Trinity Hall College. The lovely sun helped with the brightest ideas, and inspired the most glittery and colourful masks.
Once again, students ate dinners in their own colleges, after which the second lecture
took place. The title was intriguing – ‘How the Brain Works’. The speaker, Travis, also teaches Medicine
classes and has been with Reach for several years. In his lecture, he took the students on a journey through the science of memory and how our brains create them. After this memorable
lecture, the students attended more activities
such as “Casino” and Board Games. Others channeled yet more sporting enthusiasm by watching the World Cup Semi-Final (England vs USA), which we screened in Trinity Hall.
Now we know how our brains are working every day to store the wonderful memories we’re making at Reach – but if you forget, this blog (and our Instagram
stories) will be here to remind you!
