Last week saw the launch of the 1 Mile Project - a new initiative from Edspace to collaborate with schools, businesses and education entrepreneurs within 1 Mile of our location in Hackney Community College, Hoxton.
For the first activity in the 1 Mile - we’ve teamed up with Nesta (the UK’s innovation foundation) to scale up their new crowdfunding platform which empowers teachers to raise funds for the most important projects in their classroom.
It's called RocketFund, and it's now available to the 61 schools within 1 Mile of Edspace.
Learn how a primary school in Islington used Rocket Fund to buy VR headsets for their whole school.
Businesses - pledge to match fund a school project for £950
Education ventures - showcase your products and services
Individuals - donate any amount to the school projects when they go live in June
Everyone - help us spread the word!
