Queen Anne’s School, Caversham hosted a two-day BrainCanDo conference on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 March, attended by students, teachers, parents and academics.
The programme commenced with the BrainCanDo Inspiring Women Conference on Friday 6 March, in conjunction with International Women’s Day. Over 450 delegates, including students from years 10 – 13 and teachers, were in attendance at the Berkshire independent boarding and day school. Students heard from inspiring women from the world of enterprise, science and business, each discussing their own journey and promoting a ‘no limits’ approach to life. On Saturday, delegates listened to guest speakers focusing on uncovering the mysteries of the teenage brain and the future for education in the 21st century.
Speaking about the two-day conference, Mrs Harrington, Headmistress at Queen Anne’s School, said:
“We have had a fantastic two days! The girls really enjoyed hearing from our visiting speakers in preparation for International Women’s Day on Sunday 8 March. We also enjoyed learning about the mysteries of the teenage brain and celebrated all of the creativity that our young people bring to the world.”
