Kate surprised students at Nower Hill High School in Harrow, North London, as they learnt about the importance of early childhood development.

SEEN (Secondary Education around Early Neurodevelopment) is a research project run by Oxford University that looks to embed the key principles of early childhood development and neuroscience in students. Over 3,700 11 to 14-year-olds took part in three lessons which covered the neuroscience of how brains are built and how experiences (including the role of caregivers) impact brain development.
