Students enjoy AAAS Conference

A dozen students from the Sixth Form at the Stamford Endowed Schools recently travelled to Seattle for the AAAS Science Conference, providing them a chance to pursue their curiosities beyond the curriculum.

 

In addition to attending the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Conference, the group engaged in a host of cultural activities, from watching an Ice Hockey Game, to visiting the Space Needle, Monorail, Zoo and Aquarium.

 

Students noted one of their highlights as a speech given by Bill Gates, considering his foundation and reduction of the malarial cases in Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

George Bingham, Year 12 at Stamford School, said: “I would definitely recommend going on the AAAS conference science trip! Not only was there a wide variety of lectures on interesting topics, but I also had a great time going round Seattle. My favourite moment of the trip must have been either going to visit the Space Needle or looking around the Museum of Pop Culture.”
