Stratford City is the largest mixed-use regeneration project in the UK to date. Yet, many teenagers are not aware of how professional scientists are involved with this development on a day-to-day basis.
This resource aims to inspire young people to consider the opportunities to use their scientific education in a professional context using a wide range of employability skills.
Working in a team environment where imagination can flourish and using high-quality film-cameras and digital video editing software, young people created short films on a website which convey the exciting careers that teenagers can consider within Chemistry.
The project culminated in a film-screening of their work which is now a valuable resource to inform potential sixth form science students.
The project was developed in GCSE Double Science and has several cross-curricular links.
