Posted 26 July 2004July 26, 2004 Children’s University (1/1) Children’s University Impresses Councillor
Harper Adams students took the pupils on a tour of the campus, helped them take part in a finance game and discover what life is like for a university student. The children also took part in a number of workshops, from taking samples to analyse from Harper’s wildlife ponds, to learning how cows transform grass into milk, and designing web pages.
Councillor Harrison said she was impressed with the event, which she described as extremely worthwhile. "I was really impressed by the lecturers and students who did the work with the children. To realise the students gave up their holiday time shows their commitment. I would like to convey my sincere gratitude to everyone involved in the Children’s University at Harper Adams for their commitment over the years."
