MIT students in Haileybury Almaty

This week, we have been thrilled to welcome to Haileybury Almaty two current students of MIT, Sophie Mori and Alexander Lynch. Sophie is a Computer Science and Linguistics Major, and Alex is a Computer Science Major. They have been teaching a variety of workshops to pupils in IGCSE and A Level, on topics including linguistics, cryptography, and circuits. They have also had personal Q&A sessions with groups of pupils, and will be conducting lesson observations. 

On Tuesday, they spoke at assembly about themselves and their journeys to MIT, and gave a similar talk on Wednesday to parents at the IGCSE options evening; they answered parent questions afterward. It has been wonderfully inspirational for our pupils to get to know and work with Sophie and Alex, and see how self-motivation and boundless curiosity can propel you to great academic heights. Sophie and Alex will be with Haileybury Almaty through Tuesday, and then they will repeat their programme in Haileybury Astana before returning to MIT on February 2nd.
