How do you interest children in science? It helps to have a great big power station on your doorstep or the wilds of Epping Forest a short distance away. Millfields Primary School in Hackney was chosen as the focus of this teacher training film which encourages the use of group-based activities, pupils' self-initiative and the local environment.
Hackney B Power station began operating in the mid-50s but was decommissioned in 1976. Only part of the building remains today, but Millfields Community School, as it is now known, is still going strong.
