A new day has started at Cambridge and classes are getting more and more exciting as we approach the end of Program 2. In Structural Engineering, students were using pasta to build some fantastic bridges and test if they remained strong and stable. Moving on to slightly less stable builds in Business, we saw lego models as part of their “Product Innovations” class. It was an amusing class as we watched students use their creativity to work together and create distinctive products per team. Highlights of the day also include a very artistic mini excursion to a contemporary art gallery with the Literature students. In the beginning, they were hesitant on contemporary art and its meaning or importance, but by the end of the day they were contemporary art enthusiasts!
After having dinner, students made their way to the lecture hall to have a fascinating discussion about Scientific Fraud – learning all about being sceptical of the media and taking actions to rethink the structure of industries and their purpose. With plenty of examples and relating to current world health affairs, it was truly an eye-opening lecture on science’s relation with the media! Once the lecture was finished we moved on from the scientific to the supernatural with our very own Spooky Reach Cambridge Ghost Tour! This is something us Reach staff always feel excited to share Cambridge’s most haunting tales, while also dressing up as spirits ourselves to give the students a fright! With spirit Holly we roamed all around the Cambridge city and had such a blast, students were laughing and having fun – a perfect evening to end the day! Tomorrow we have more classes and our infamous Talent Show to look forward to, sleep well everyone it will be another busy day tomorrow!
