ACCLAIMED scientist Professor Lord Robert Winston captivated students when he gave a talk.

He asked the question ‘Can we survive in the 21st century’ when he was guest speaker at the annual science lecture at Bedales in Petersfield.

Pupils from Churcher’s College and Portsmouth High School also attended.

Daniel Rasbash, a lower sixth student at Bedales, said: ‘Lord Robert Winston spoke charismatically and passionately about the relationship between humans and technology.

‘We were privileged to enjoy dinner with Lord Winston at the headmaster’s house and have a discussion with him about 
biology, music and Imperial College.’

Headmaster Keith Budge added: ‘Inspirational talks from thought-leaders across a range of academic disciplines are an integral part of the school’s intellectual life.’
