Aspiring scientists and engineers from New City College are gearing up for an exciting opportunity as they participate in the Transport for London (TfL) Innovate competition.
The challenge, where students compete in teams of 4-6 people against other schools and colleges in London, gives young people the chance to work together on an innovation and design concept to win prizes, including iPads and invaluable work experience.
A Level Physics students at Havering Sixth Form campus were given a talk by the TfL Innovate project leader, Zahid. He introduced them to the competition, explaining that the teams have to come up with an innovative solution to a real-life TfL problem and contribute to a more efficient and sustainable transport system.
The finalists, who will pitch their innovation to a panel of experts in March 2024, will all be offered work experience with TfL where they can gain first hand insights into the world of transportation, planning, design and engineering.
