TEDI-London is developing a brand-new campus that will be a vibrant place of learning. Artwork for the campus should reflect our vision and values. The objective of this project was to design a sculpture drinking fountain, that filtered water from the nearby dock – Canada Water – using renewable energy.

“The TEDI-London Summer School was a great opportunity to meet, work and network with people from a range of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds and have an influence on what the future of engineering education might look like.
I found the whole experience really fun and exciting, it was incredible to see how much could be achieved in such a short time, both by the students in our projects as well as by the enthusiastic TEDI-London team in building and developing the program itself.”

“Being a part of the TEDI-London summer school was a stellar experience. Not only did I get to apply my degree knowledge on a project I was a passionate about, but I also got to learn from people studying different subjects in an interdisciplinary team. It was great knowing our technology could improve the lives of others – it gave us the motivation to get the device to market.”

“Despite not being from an engineering background, the TEDI-London summer school helped me develop a range of transferable skills, including public speaking, project management and design. It was an incredibly enjoyable and unique experience. The icing on the cake was when one of the industry figures at the Open Day was so impressed with my efforts he offered me a job!”
“I didn’t know what to expect from TEDI-London, but it has expanded my horizons. The idea of a globally focused engineer who aims to solve big problems will be more and more valuable in coming years – I’m grateful for the opportunity to explore and understand this.”Xavier Perkes
