Year 7 Awarded Grant for STEM ProjectPosted on: May 22nd 2017
We have recently received a grant for £900 from The Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London Charity Fund which will be used to support our incoming Year 7 STEM identity project. Initially founded in 1664 to regulate the glass selling and pot making industries within the City of London, today the company promotes the use of glass in arts, crafts, science and technology and actively supports education.
Students will learn about the science of glass as a substrate and the design possibilities its properties provide. They will be encouraged to use their imagination to design and create glass tiles, using a variety of glass products and other materials, which will form a permanent art installation in the school.
