Today (11th March), will.i.am visited The Science Museum in London to announce new collaboration with Prince’s trust. Will has launched The Prince’s Trust workshops, which will be run in partnership with the Science Museum in schools across the country. The new partnership will see Science Museum outreach staff visiting Prince’s Trust xl clubs in schools across the country to deliver Launchbox workshops aimed at inspiring and engaging 13-19 year olds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
“Inspiring young people through science and technology is a powerful tool and I am proud to see my donation to The Prince’s Trust being put into action to help engage disadvantaged youth who would not otherwise have access to technology and science education. These workshops are an amazing way to engage disadvantaged youngsters who don’t have this sort of access to technology and science otherwise. Today I have met with young people who are being supported by The Trust to improve their digital skills or seek to make their living through STEM related subjects. Through this new initiative, we will connect many more disadvantaged youngsters to the worlds of computing, and science and technology.”
Will met with HRH The Prince of Wales, The Prince’s Trust president, last year, to discuss his support for disadvantaged young people at The Trust with funding from his i.am angel foundation.
