City of the Future

A group of our Year 7 D&T students had a trip up to Roehampton University to work in conjunction with the Teentech Project and their CEO Maggie Philbin. Raynes Park High School has been lucky enough to take part in a number of worthwhile TeenTech events and competitions which focus on showing young people the wealth of opportunities in the science, technology and engineering industries, regardless of gender or social background.

The ‘City of Tomorrow’ programme at Roehampton University highlights career pathways in construction, engineering and technology as well as promoting citizenship and teamwork. They worked in small groups with local Year 6 students to design and create prototypes of ‘buildings of the future’. There were some very innovative designs and their hard work was rewarded as they won in 5 out of 10 categories! We had a great day out and have been invited back to the finals of the competition in January.
