LSE Cities researchers took part in LSE Research Festival 2015 event with Harris Academies students

26 June 2015

Back in March, Suzi Hall from LSE Cities visited Harris Academies East Dulwich to deliver a seminar to sixth form students. On 24 June 2015, students from Harris Academies once again took part in an event as part of LSE Research Festival 2015. This time the tables were turned and the students visited LSE campus to get a taste of what LSE research has to offer with a series of workshops with researchers. The goal of the day was to give prospective students a taste of the variety and innovation of research in the social sciences being conducted across the school, as part of the wider LSE Research Festival, which aims to be a public celebration of social science research.

Two LSE Cities researchers took part in the session.

Mona Sloane from the Configuring Light/Staging the Social project conducted a workshop with the students on the ways in which social research into light can be used to impact lighting design.

Suzi Hall’s presentation in March discussed the socio-economic make-up of Peckham Rye lane, and students had conducted their own research on the area. Their research question, “Should Peckham be re-branded”, was presented to Suzi who provided comments and feedback on their work.
