Earlscliffe Scholars attend Dukes Education Symposium

Posted: 13th October 2023

At the beginning of October, four Earlscliffe students represented our school at the annual Dukes Education Renaissance Scholars Symposium in Cambridge.

Cambridge is the intellectual heart of England. It is well known for its historic beauty, as well as being home to some of the most significant science developments, such as where Francis Crick announced the discovery of the structure of DNA. Both Charles Darwin and Alan Turing studied in Cambridge.

On this occasion, the Renaissance Scholars Symposium was hosted by Dukes colleges Cardiff Sixth Form College Cambridge and St Andrews. World leading innovators shared their first-hand stories from the worlds of nuclear physics, molecular medicine and artificial intelligence. Of course, we always make time for fun and we were pleased to see our students joining in with the karaoke in the evening, 

Earlscliffe students were then also asked to teamwork with scholars from the other colleges to complete a bridge-making challenge. They then finished the day by making robot buggies.

These A-level students were carefully selected in recognition of their academic excellence and their hard work ethics. They have consistently shown a strength and resilience and a passion for their chosen subject, and were therefore rewarded with this enriching experience.
