Imperial College Experience for Year 10
On Thursday, as part of Renaissance Day, 40 students from Year 10 travelled to Imperial College and the nearby Science Museum.
The students were given a campus tour of the South Kensington Campus by three student ambassadors. The tour was really interesting and gave the students an insight into university life.
The boys were overawed by the history behind the university and the notable alumni which include Sir Alexander Fleming and H.G. Wells. The student ambassadors were all current students, so this gave the boys the chance to quiz them about their own Imperial study experience.
“I would love to come to this university"
Following the tour, the Harris boys were excited and enthused at the prospect of university life. Syed already has his heart set on attending Imperial: “I definitely would love to come to this university, the courses they have on offer and the university itself is very appealing”.
Once the tour finished, we took a short stroll to the Science Museum. After a quick lunch break, the boys explored the various exhibitions in the museum, including ‘exploring space’, ‘medicine’ and ‘flight’.
"Who am I?" exhibition
The students had a particularly good time in the ‘who am I?’ exhibition. They were able to discover what makes them unique through intriguing objects, thought-provoking artworks and hands-on exhibits. This not only developed their curiosity behind science but also provided them with invaluable information that will be useful in their studies.
We finished the visit in the ‘Science Photographer of the Year’ exhibition, a gallery displaying eye-catching images that show science being done, show how photography helps science or how science impacts upon our daily lives.
