Year 8 'Being Human' Summer School

This is a fun week of lessons that explore ideas around identity and what it means to be human. A lot of the sessions will be based in museums and you will get the opportunity to learn from real museum objects.

During the May half term, you will have the chance to discover some of the history and ideas about our bodies, how they have been studied in the past, and what we can learn from art, science and medicine now.

Examples of some of the sessions that you could take part in during the week are:
  • Watch a visit from a Renaissance Surgeon
  • Explore the Past in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology
  • Take part in Zoo CSI in the Grant Museum of Zoology
  • And many more!

You will meet students from other schools, make lots new friends, and find out more about university. You will also get a certificate for completing the programme.
