This week, Lewis Hamilton visited the Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets, London to see first-hand how the Mulberry Schools Trust and Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix's Accelerate 25 partnership is helping to empower students from under-represented backgrounds towards careers in STEM.
STEM is an educational program developed to prepare primary and secondary students for college, graduate study and careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The visit gave Hamilton the opportunity to get involved with several hands-on STEM activities, like learning about coding in a Robotics lesson, and enjoying an immersive arts experience which showcased the students' technical skills in digital and production arts.
Following the classroom learning, the students delighted in showing the seven-time world champion their Racetrack Garage and displayed their Greenpower Trust cars.
The students also had the opportunity to put questions to Lewis and ask advice as he toured the school.
“It was an honour to meet so many passionate and intelligent students, and to see the game-changing work that the Mulberry Schools Trust and our team are doing to inspire and support young engineers and bring increased diversity to motorsport,” commented the Briton.
“I hope the students continue to believe in themselves and go on to show the rest of the world what they are capable of."
