“It is vital that London school pupils gain hands on experience of the latest technologies and the science involved, if they are to become the innovators of tomorrow creating future growth and jobs in London through their entrepreneurial minds.”
Kit Malthouse, Deputy Mayor for Business and Enterprise at the 2013 final of the London Schools Challenge
"I really enjoyed making the lego cars because it was very fun. Also, I found it interesting how hydrogen can be used to power vehicles without fossil fuels such as oil. From this workshop I learnt how hydrogen is separated using the small device and then stored so that it can be used to power the car."

"I thought the session was a success. The students really enjoyed the competition and everyone had some success. I think that it was quite an open challenge which suited the students that took part. The staff were also good at talking to the students and the students responded well to them."
