Seema Malhotra MP today visited Space Studio West London with Chris Skidmore, Minister of State for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation.
The two met the headteacher, teachers and students at Space Studio West London. They were also treated to an exhibition of students’ work there, including a robotics demonstration.
Seema Malhotra invited the Minister’s predecessor, Richard Harrington MP, to visit Space Studio West London during Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Questions:
The Space Studio School in Feltham, started by the Rivers Academy, continues to innovate, bringing about high-quality science education and industry-related work, and engaging with the National Space Centre, the European Space Agency, NASA and the aerospace industry around Heathrow. Does the Minister agree that even stronger relationships between schools and industry are vital to ensure that we stay competitive? Will he agree to visit the Space Studio in west London to see what is being done there and what more can be done to improve opportunities for young people?
Harrington replied: “Yes and yes.”
