Science Summer School 2016

Well North pupils joined many other young people from schools across London at the 2016 Science Summer School (SSS). They took part in seminars, discussions, hands-on experiments and networking opportunities designed to inspire and encourage the next generation of scientists and engineers in the UK.

Britain needs more scientists and engineers says SSS patron and world renowned physicist Professor Brian Cox. This is one of the reasons why the St Paul’s Way Trust has been running it for five years. Its aim is to inspire young people to become the next generation of Britain’s scientists.

The 2016 event was the largest and most adventurous so far, with an impressive 409 students attending, ranging from Year 6 to sixth formers.

SSS highlights included the following key note lectures:

  • Professor Brian Cox - The Search for Life in the Solar System
  • Dr Turi King - Richard III: Resolution of a 500 Year Mystery
  • Dr Erica McAllister- The Life of Flies
  • Professor Brian Cox - The Origins of the Laws of Nature
  • Dr Ceri Brenner - Pressing FIRE on the Most Powerful Laser
  • Dr Steven Le Comber - Maths, Murder and Malaria.

Feedback from delegates was highly positive:

It was absolutely brilliant! Student.

Excellent idea, please continue to do this for future generations. Student.

Out of all the events to which I take students over the year, this one has tremendous potential to change lives. It is so inspirational. Thank you! Visiting teacher
