Julian meets scientists of the future at specialist college


JH_-_with_AD_in_lab.jpgMP Julian Huppert will visit Cambridge’s specialist technical college on Friday (March 20) to address students at their assembly.

Julian, who was a research scientist before taking his seat at Westminster, will also find out more about the work of UTC Cambridge and how it is teaching a curriculum designed to deliver the next generation of scientists and technologists.

The £10 million college on Addenbrooke’s Hospital’s Biomedical Campus teaches 14 to 19-year-olds giving them the opportunity to learn skills needed to meet the needs of the biomedical and environmental science and technology fields.

Julian said: “This college offers students who are passionate about science and technology the opportunity to follow a curriculum which should prove to be a perfect fit for Cambridge’s high-tech businesses.

“I am interested in finding out how its first intake of students have settled in and take a look at the work they have been doing. These are the young people who will be taking technology, research and development forward for the next generation. I’m really pleased this government has established these UTCs, showing a real commitment to skills and vocational education.”
