Immersion Days at LAE Tottenham
Book now to attend!
Get a taste of A Level study.
Immersion days at LAE Tottenham are designed to give prospective students the opportunity to have a taste of A Level study in either STEM or Arts subjects.
On the STEM day, students begin with a scenario within which they will need to use their scientific and technological knowledge. Activities will vary from understanding the different techniques for dissection, using mathematics to understand what is means to test positive for diseases, to testing materials to destruction. This gives a feel for the interactive and practical nature of STEM learning at A Level.
Our Art, Humanities and Social Sciences day will focus on representations and connections. Below is a breakdown and description of the workshops that will be on offer.
