Our first repair session – and the students were super excited to learn and show their skills in disassembly. Archer Academy’s IT Manager Khalid provided laptops with broken screens. We started with laptop fundamentals.
We are seeing hints that electronics repair is spreading and proliferating in both primary and secondary school, in Europe and North America.
We were encouraged to stress organisation, preparation and mindful disassembly with year 10 students at Archer Academy in London. Our game controller disassembly and reassembly session worked really well.
In our third session with Archer Academy students, we finally got hands-on with gadgets. But not before we took a couple moments to talk about safety.
How often do we connect our own predicament with those across the world? In Session 2 of our pilot enrichment project at Archer Academy, we tried to associate the stress we feel in our consumerist, status-focused society with that transferred to workers.
We’ve started our ten-week enrichment project with Archer Academy students in north London. For our first session, we met the students and delved into what motivates us to take action.
This month, we will begin a ten-session enrichment programme with students at the Archer Academy, a school in North London. We will start with a dive into why we need to change our relationship with electronic and get hands-on.
We’re recruiting a couple of student leaders of secondary school age to help lay the foundations for a global student campaign against our throw-away relationship with electronics.
