VISITORS to Cadbury College's open day are in for a surprise as traditional talks with teachers have been replaced with live interactive experiences.

The Kings Norton campus of the popular sixth form college will buzz with activity as every department has created a challenge, from brain training sessions run by the psychology department to cracking a court case during a live trial where guests can play judge and jury.

Look at life through a lens and discover what DNA looks like, write code to create a mini calculator, don period costumes in the Victorian writers’ corner, learn photoshop skills or take part in live experiments in the science laboratories and various games, challenges and debates will be held throughout the other subjects.

Lynnette Michaelides, vice principal said: “We offer over 50 subjects at A-Level and BTEC so our Open Event offers the perfect opportunity to showcase them all, but to do that in a fun and interesting way.

“We also wanted to show the links between the subject and the career pathways they can lead to, for example science subjects lead to a wide range of careers from a pilot to a park ranger, but student perception perhaps is that they only lead to lab work.

“While they’re here they can also enjoy a tour of our excellent facilities and our friendly senior leadership team will happily answer any question however big or small.”

Food will also be available during the open day to give guests a taste of what else is on offer at Cadbury College.

Doors will open at 10am on Saturday, November 11.
