Our students have been separated into boys and girls to engender some good old-fashioned competitiveness. We looked at what questions students wanted to answer regarding Diabetes.

After lunch, Louisa Huxtable-Thomas, from the School of Management, taught a workshop on the usage of LinkedIn. We have been investigating how to create a professional LinkedIn profile and how to ensure that your profile is private – particularly if you are under 18. It is such a useful feature that your profile is automatically private if you are under 18.

Louisa next explored the importance of ethics, and it was great to see students engaging in moral discussions on a range of ethical issues. We have some very enthusiastic scientists among our group!
