Forty-two Year 12 psychology students attended a lecture by Dr Amanda Waterman at the University of Leeds on the development of memory. This is an area of their course that they are currently studying and stretched them beyond the A-level specification.
Students were very lucky to be given this opportunity that undergraduates pay £9000 per year for. The students were shocked to see that lectures were delivered to hundreds of people at once and so it was certainly an eye opener for future pathways.
After the lecture we walked into the city centre and students conducted their practical project which they have been planning in class. These group projects ranged from use of mobile phones in public to the variance of friendliness up north, and everything in between.
The students enjoyed exploring the city and some are hoping to go back to study further there in the not too distant future!
