Summer 2019: Program 1 – Day 4
The fun continues to grow exponentially on the Reach Cambridge 2019 Program 1!
Classes today were varied as always. The Medicine students had the chance to learn about pregnancy and what it means to be an OB-GYN doctor. Meanwhile in Computer Science, students put robots to their test in their very own Robot Wars style challenge! Students learned about rules and tips for court conduct in Law, while the Journalism class continued their work on video interviews, moving to the editing stage of the process.
Once again, the students had a chance to test their competitive sporting abilities with football, rounders and frisbee. Some of our North American students seem to find the idea of the classic British game of Rounders strange and don’t understand why we don’t play baseball! For the more creative students, amongst the cohort there was the option to make some wonderful friendship bracelets to celebrate the friendships that have been made on Reach Cambridge. There were some extremely colourful creations made!
The evening lecture today was on the exciting world of University! Students were treated to an excellent presentation on everything university-related by our team members Jess and Luke. The talk covered all aspects of UK university life and made mention of many UK universities, not just Cambridge. The students asked many questions and were very enthusiastic in learning about what their futures could hold if they went to a university in the UK.
The main attraction today though was the Reach Cambridge Groove in the Trinity Hall JCR! Students used the opportunity to show off their amazing dance moves to the beats of an international playlist carefully crafted by the Reach Team. Those students who were less rhythmically inclined were of course given the chance to test their thinking abilities with card games in the adjacent room, complete with snacks and soft drinks.
The students have settled in amazingly well and there are some fantastic friendships being made here in the beautiful city of Cambridge.
