Worthian returns to talk to students

Worth School

It was great to welcome former student Rory Ryan back to Worth this week to talk to the current cohort about his journey since leaving the School and how he is now leading pioneering work using artificial intelligence to find a cure for cancer.

Rory, who was in Chapman House and left in 2009, was our latest guest speaker in the Spencer Lecture Series. The series provides our Sixth Form students and Year 11 scholars with a broad range of thought-provoking talks on a variety of subjects.

Returning to Worth on Tuesday, the main focus of Rory’s talk was his entrepreneurial career path from Worth, where he had always loved drawing and making things, to Mechanical Engineering at Leeds University, to setting up a series of failed businesses, to moving to Shenzhen in China to create a biomed business and now back home using AI to find cancer medication. It was a very interesting talk and the students were totally engaged, as well as keen to ask a lot of questions.
