Mr Willatt led the members of the Year 10 Athenaeum through a fascinating overview of the idea of Smart Cities and the opportunities and challenges they present.  The group discussed if it was possible for technology to be harnessed in such a way to enable the efficient running of a city and directed to the benefit of its inhabitants, sustainable economically and environmentally.  The students were particularly engaged by the task of imagining a city run on the lines of one of their favourite computer games.

The lesson forms part of the Scholars Programme which includes workshops and lectures overseen by our Head of Academic Scholarship, Mr Cavendish.
