The weekend marked the halfway point of the first session in London, and for our Imperial students it was a chance to measure how far they had come in the first week as they tackled the Great Debate.
After Saturday’s trip to the East End, Sunday began with a preparation session where the students could collate all their work and make any final polishing touches to it.
The topic of the debate was ‘Successes & Failures of Manned & Unmanned Space Flight Missions & their Costs’ which proved a stimulating theme for debate. The students argued their points firmly but respectfully which was brilliant.
In attendance was Colin Jack from the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford. Colin has done extensive research into the possibility of life on Mars – and so proved an invaluable tool for our students!
Following an afternoon of intense but constructive debate, the students had the evening to take in a trip to the cinema, choosing from either Spider-Man or the latest Toy Story film – a fitting end to a day which has taken them to infinity, and beyond!
