Hello Monsters!

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the University of Monsters and Reading next week. We are going to be focusing on studying at University and what that means.

As part of your day you will have the chance to attend 2 lectures and the great news is you can choose which one you would like to attend.

LECTURE 1: 11am-12pm

‘The Value of Art’ and ‘Can Robots think?’- Philosophy

What is the difference between your friend and your Xbox, or your pet and your mum? Could a robot convince you it is human? Is the toilet roll in your bathroom, or your unmade bed, art? Find out the answer to all these questions whilst discussing the value of art and thinking robots.

Theatre Master class – Theatre

LECTURE 2: 1pm-2pm

Making Laws – Law

Ever wondered what silly laws there are in this country? Think you can make a silly rule that could be a law? This session will explore the weird and wonderful rules there are and let you make one up for yourself as a ‘University of Monsters’ Law.’

Volcanoes – Geography

Rock, eruptions and lava. Ever wondered what a volcano is, what happens when it erupts and where volcanoes are? This session will explore a topic of physical geography ‘volcanoes’.

Why do clouds float? – Meteorology

Why is the sky blue? Why do clouds float? This session will answer these questions and others to give you an idea of what really happens with the weather. Get ready to explore the world of weather and impress your family with facts about clouds, rainbows and the sky.

You each need to choose ONE option from each section (lecture 1 and lecture 2). Think about what you are interested in, what type of thing you would like to study, or about trying something you would not get to study in schools. Each session will be interactive and have activities for you to complete.
