Professor Lord Winston Returns to UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

Professor Lord Winston has returned to deliver a talk to UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park students after officially opening the campus earlier this year.

Lord Winston held a question and answer session on Thursday 23 November.

The £10 million campus, on Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, specialises in Computing, Health Sciences and Sport Science, and opened to students in September 2016.

Dr Sarah Clark, Principal, said: “We are delighted that Lord Winston returned to share his knowledge and insight with our students following his official launch of our fantastic building earlier this year.”

She added: “Lord Winston is one of the country’s leading scientists and has an amazing ability to explain and bring science alive in an exciting way. Our students develop the technical skills that employers need and hearing from academic, employer and industry experts is an important part of their learning experience here at the UTC.”

Student Phoebe, who is in Year 10, said: “Lord Winston’s visit was a very honourable and intriguing experience. He answered our questions in depth with passion and gave us knowledgeable and scientific explanations, which taught us more about his work, and how, where and why it began.”

Earlier this year, Lord Winston toured the new facilities, met students and staff and unveiled a commemorative plaque when he officially opened the new campus in May 2017. The UTC has student ‘house’ groups known as learning companies, one of which is named after Lord Winston.

Lord Winston is Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London. Lord Winston’s other roles include being the Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University and a television presenter.
