Last month we welcomed our new cohort of MRes students to STOR-i. This year ten students, from the UK, Europe, India and Jamaica, arrived at Lancaster to start the STOR-i programme.

As part of the welcome week induction programme, the MRes cohort, along with the 1st year PhD cohort and various staff members, spent two days in the Lake District enjoying a packed schedule of team-building activities. The two-day event saw teams of staff and students competing against each other in a series of different physical and mental challenges, whilst also allowing the new cohort time to get to know each other in a fun and relaxed setting.

Activities on the first day were based around the hotel and included a variety of indoor of team challenges. The second day saw us out and about on the Langdale Estate, learning duck herding, axe throwing and aerial target shooting. We also got to meet some birds of prey and take part in an orienteering challenge around the Langdale valley.

The rain held off for the most part and we all had a great time getting to know each other whilst learning some interesting new skills!
