The Duke of York visits Cambridge

The Duke of York spent the day visiting Cambridge Science Centre, Raspberry Pi and Hughes Hall.

The Duke of York, Patron, of Cambridge Science Centre met the staff, teachers and pupils of the centre on his visit.

The Cambridge Science Centre is an independent Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education charity. It is a devoted, innovative, hands-on science exhibition and activity space for families and schools. The Centre opened in February 2011, and the Duke became Patron of the Centre in 2014.

The Duke then travelled to Hughes Hall, where HRH is an Honorary Fellow to be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant.  

Hughes Hall appoints HRH as an Honorary Fellow in recognition of The Duke’s work to encourage minds in business and entrepreneurship through programmes.

During the visit, HRH had the opportunity to learn about Hughes Hall’s new friendship programme, The Bridge. The programme is intended to provide advice to researchers from senior Fellows to students. 

As The Duke of York is an Honorary Fellow, HRH opened Hughes Hall’s brand new 85 room student accommodation, Gresham Court.
