The goal of this project was to develop the Build Your Own Digital Railway Programme for Crossrail, for delivery in schools. This program was designed and developed by interviewing Crossrail staff, STEM education experts, teachers, and ambassadors to determine the most appropriate program criteria. It is delivered using five handbooks to guide teachers, mentors, and students. The program is mapped to two Cambridge Nationals qualifications, along with an additional vocational qualification that extends the program from ten to twelve weeks. Students will choose to follow the Engineering or Creative Strand to obtain the respective qualification while collaborating to build their own digital railway, a transit system designed to help users through their daily routine.
