News Year 11 Catalyst Seminar Sessions 11.06.2021

This week Year 11 students were treated to a series of talks from staff across a range of fascinating topics – from vaccine equality to non-fungible tokens.

The inaugural Catalyst Seminars were designed to act as the ‘stimulus’ and inspiration for students’ forthcoming TED talks. Like the Sixth Form Enrichment Sessions before half-term, students have benefitted immensely from hearing staff speak so passionately on a number of different topics and seen their presentation literacy first-hand. Topics ranged from how food acts as a gateway to the understanding of culture and language, to the Anthropocene age, the democratic challenges facing some Latin American countries, to the hotly-debated topic of women in STEM.
