Dux Award Visit to Edinburgh University

Isobel and Michael travelled by train with Mr Shaw to Edinburgh, where Michael demonstrated his navigational flair by finding the Informatics Centre at the first time of asking!  Once there, they were given a brief introduction to university life by the Student Admissions Team and were given a guided tour of the campus by a third year undergraduate.  In the afternoon the pupils got to take part in a philosophy workshop, which Micahel siad was “very interesting and not what I expected”.  They also got the opportunity to see the cutting edge work being done by the university in the field of robotics.  We just had enough time to fit in some sightseeing on the way back to the station!  Isobel siad the day had “really motivated her to want to go to a top university”.
