Sports Discovery Day at Coventry University and the University of Warwick
On Wednesday 12th June 58 ThinkHigher students from eight schools attended a Sport Discovery Day. With visits to both Coventry University and the University of Warwick; the ambitious day attempted to give year 9 and 10 pupils an insight into the important role that sport plays in Higher Education. The day started with an interactive session with academics from the Sports Science department. The next session looked at routes into studying sport at university along with possible career progressions. Next was an interactive group quiz designed by a ThinkHigher student (Harry from GE). The morning at Coventry ended with a tour of the Life Sciences building.
Next stop was the brand new Sport and Wellness Hub at Warwick. After refuelling the students with baguettes, it was on to a choice of American football with Warwick Wolverines, Boxercise or Climbing and Bouldering. After an action packed day the students were ready for a relaxed coach journey back to school.
One Harris student was pleased to find out that sport can open up so many options for your future.
