Young Scientists Summer School - Debate Chamber

Young Scientists Summer School

Are you inquisitive? Are you creative? Do you find yourself wondering how things work, and why? Do you want to help shape the future of Planet Earth? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then the Young Scientists Summer School is for you. We offer students aged 11-14 the opportunity to explore some of the most interesting topics in Science, from the foundations of quantum physics to the moral complexities of genetic engineering.

Science is more than a body of knowledge, it is a way of thinking.  The Young Scientists Summer School focuses on developing intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and the desire to explore academic material independently.  Taking in a wide range of skills from the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering, students will discover how to build bridges, design a rocket and a Mars rover, search for life on distant planets, and trace the history of the universe all the way back to a trillionth of a second after the big bang. A strong emphasis will be placed on collaborative problem-solving, with an expert tutor on hand to provide constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement.

The structure of the course across three days ensures an enjoyable variety of puzzles, problems, activities and exercises. During each session, students will benefit from the sensitive guidance of our friendly team of tutors, and from small class sizes which ensure that there is plenty of space for each voice to be heard. At the end of the course, students will leave feeling inspired to explore the wonders of the universe, and motivated to make a difference.
