On Monday 30th September, a group of Year 9 students went to Canary wharf for the Launch of JP Morgans’ STEM outreach program. The challenge has been set by the Mayor of London to make London a better place, by inventing a product and making a prototype to improve air quality and urban biodiversity or make London more sustainable .
the students are at the beginning of a six-month program working with Mentors from JP Morgan and Edcoms, and we are one of only 12 schools across London have been selected to take part .
The next session is at Imperial College’s Maker Space where they will learn how to use the laser cutters, 3d printers and other machinery to ensure, once they have designed their invention, they can construct a working prototype.
The students listened intently to scientific lectures about climate change and environmental issues, and approached the whole day in a really enthusiastic and mature way.
