Liverpool Company Steam School host global brands on programme streamed into UK schools

Steam School, an award-winning education programme that broadcasts into schools and homes across the UK has welcomed guests from Virgin Galactic and Under Armour as part of its Fashion Futures season.

Live from Spaceport America in New Mexico, Jameel Janjua – a member of the Virgin Galactic spaceship pilot corps – introduced students to the company’s mission to open space, making it more accessible to civilians in future.

During the 30-minute broadcast, Jameel discussed the innovation behind their brand-new spacesuits and answered questions from students live across the UK, as well as sharing the story behind his training with tips and advice for aspiring astronauts.

In another episode, the sustainability team at Under Armour – the American sports equipment company – joined students to discuss product innovation and how the company is working hard to protect the planet. Michael Levine, Under Armour’s Vice President of Sustainability answered questions about their efforts to reduce the impact of their operations and gave a motivational talk on what we could all be doing to help the environment.

“Fashion Futures has been a fantastic season and I’m proud that Steam School has been able to continue supporting schools with amazing content and world-class guests throughout the pandemic” says founder Jade Parkinson-Hill. “Our mission is to inspire the next generation of inventors, digital creatives and tech entrepreneurs by connecting them with the likes of Virgin Galactic and Under Armour. The feedback so-far has been outstanding and we’ve got more phenomenal guests joining us throughout the rest of the school year!”

Other contributors across the season included sustainable fashion platform Make Thread; Sahrye Cohen from San Francisco – an inspiring tech couture designer and author of “Make It, Wear It!” – a book for makers, crafters and cosplayers; and Rachel Feinberg, CEO and co-founder of Ateyo – a Los Angeles fashion company creating high-performance clothing for gamers.

Early next week, Steam School will be announcing the line-up for its upcoming ‘Metaverse’ season which will include major names from the world of virtual reality, gaming, and social media.
