EPQ Research Trip to Southampton University

This week, 25 Lower Sixth students became university researchers as they visited the Hartley Library at Southampton University to supplement their work on their Extended Projects. The students applied to join the trip by identifying why they would need university research to complete their EPQ.

The day began with a productive trawl through Southampton University’s databases, and the students experienced a campus lunch at the Student Union. The afternoon was spent combing the Hartley Library for useful books and exploring the world of a busy university library.

This year’s projects range from investigating alternatives to antibiotics, to questioning whether protest rock of the Vietnam War era had a measurable effect on public opinion. We wish the whole EPQ cohort the best of luck as they continue to research and begin to write their projects.
