Our ‘Find Your Future’ series of events at the University of Reading are designed to give pupils short tasters of various subjects they could study at University, raising awareness of the wide range of degree courses on offer. For this ‘Trailblazers’ event, academic staff at the University have created short videos introducing an inspiring person who has had a big impact in their field. To go alongside these videos, we have written some suggested activities designed to help pupils practice their research and presentation skills, as well as helping them to think about their future subject choices.

The suggested age suitability for this activity is Year 9 upwards, but these resources may also be of general interest to other age groups.
