Harris Experience Imperial Trip
On Wednesday 8th November a group of Year 10 Students were lucky enough to attend a set of lectures at the prestigious venue right next to the Science Museums and the V&A Museum.
We travelled by Minibus, train and tube and had a brisk walk to the Lecture Theatre, arriving at 12:30 to be greeted by a few hundred other students from the Harris Federation. A real “family” occasion!
The lectures were really interesting, we heard about how scientists work, the science of rocks, how we now use human poo to treat infections in others, how a fusion reactor works as well as how Imperial can help us to become students at this university. All of the lecturers were either PhD students or had already published papers and were post doctorate staff. Almost all of the lecturers were female, something that I hope will inspire more girls to do a STEM subject at the highest level.
Once the lectures had finished we rode home on the trains tired but happy!
