That was on top of two 15 minute recesses and a half hour lunch break, all spent out of doors. Unfortunately the way our school systems are now structured our children are lucky if they receive 20 minutes of time outside the…

For John Gurdon, his future as a zoologist seemed in doubt in 1949 as a schoolmaster at Eton College wrote on his report card that becoming a scientist would be “quite ridiculous”. In fact, the schoolmaster went on to say his performance was so bad that it would be a sheer waste of time to both teach him and expect that he would come anywhere near his dream. “If he can’t learn simple biological facts he would have no change of doing the work of a specialist…” Interestingly enough, Gurdon spent his time studying the classics at Oxford before switching…
