Greater London Authority

“We were delighted to team up with OHC&AT  to work on a new RE:CODE London event tailored for SEND students. RE:CODE London is a collaboration between the Mayor of London, the LEGO® Group and the Institute of Imagination, where children attend a workshop to solve real-world challenges where they design, build and code their own LEGO robot.  We were really grateful for their expertise and enthusiasm, which gave us the confidence that our new event was accessible for a wide range of student needs. The event took place in April 2018, and we were thrilled to receive positive feedback from both students and teachers, and look forward to running more events in the future.”

Dan Rowson,  Senior Project Officer for STEM – Education and Youth Team
