Book now to attend!
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, Humanities and Social Science subjects.
On the STEM day, students will be given 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, testing materials to destruction.
Our Arts, Humanities and Social Science day will focus on representations and connections across various subjects. The subjects on offer are: Art, English Literature, Economics, French, Geography, History, Politics, Spanish.
Both days promise to be a thought provoking taste of academic A Level study.
Refreshments will also be provided for all in attendance.
