Artist and engineer Brendan Walker worked with Year 9 pupils to create a flotilla of steam-powered Pop Pop boats, fabricated from recycled tin cans. Boats were bio-fuelled with oil pressed from sunflower seeds, grown by the boys in a hydroponics tent. Boats were tested at the Victoria Park Steamboat Club - home of the Pop Pop world speed record of 43.84mph achieved by Chatterbox III in 1926.
As part of a bespoke project called Broadgate Stories, Hackney media students, working in SPACE MediaLab, were given training to provide them with digital & creative sector entry-level skills and inspiration. The aim is to make a real difference by helping young people into the jobs of tomorrow.
SPACE has extensive experience of delivering digital and media training opportunities for young people aged 14 to 24. We work with schools and NEET youth groups, offering accredited programmes and Arts Awards, level 1 - 3.
