Today was the second day of excursions for the students, with a packed programme taking in some of the cultural sites of London!
After breakfast in hall the students travelled by coach to central London to visit the Natural History Museum. For the academic component of the day, the students were asked to pick out two objects from the museum; one that they felt was particularly relevant to their course, and one which related to interdisciplinary thinking. This drew on the fascinating lecture given by Reach tutor Genny on Friday, and the students will present their objects later in the week.
After lunch in South Kensington, some students explored nearby Hyde Park, taking in the sights of the Royal Albert Hall, the Albert Memorial and the Serpentine. The rest of the group made the short trip into Knightsbridge to visit the historic department store Harrods and enjoy the busy shopping streets.
Thankfully the students made it to the coach before the rainstorms, and we arrived back in Cambridge where the students headed into town to get dinner and enjoyed a well-earned chill out.
Looking forward to getting back to classes tomorrow!
