Join us to hear from three teachers who have taken part in the V&A Innovate National Schools Challenge over the past two years. They will share their range of experiences delivering the Challenge with different year groups, embedded within a D&T curriculum, and as part of an after-school club. Come away from the session with ideas and top tips for how you can run V&A Innovate in your setting.
