ROOTS was founded in October 2017 by three students from Charterhouse School. These three motivated pupils had a passion for engineering and technology, and were puzzled at how very few of our fellow students shared our interest.
Realising that such enthusiasm starts in the early teenage years, these students felt that they could generate this interest in STEM in these younger students. By giving talks, hosting workshops and providing other schools with resources for coding, design and more, they hope to empower these students with tools not only for the expansion of the STEM field, but also for giving themselves a brighter future. ROOTS gives kids from less privileged backgrounds opportunities they may otherwise not have.
