Event Details

We all love a good TED talk and none more than the STEAM Co. crew, after all the No 1 TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson inspired our journey.

He's also patron of a very inspiring organisiation The Institute of Imagination' with whom we are really proud to team up with to  'walk the talk' by hosting this very special evening screening of a film featuring Sir Ken and lots that he, we and they stand for... inspiring our children with creativity, in education and beyond.

“This film should be a required course for all parents and educators”
Film Threat

“Among the best edu-documentaries ever”
Education Week

“I believe that creativity is now as important as literacy”
Sir Ken Robinson TED talk

“Insanity. Doing the same thing, expecting different results”
Albert Einstein

We'd like to invite you to join us for a screening of ​'Most Likely To Succeed' - the Sundance festival nominated and award winning film that’s helping school communities reimagine what our children and their teachers are capable of doing.

We hope you'll stay on to share your thoughts in a discussion around the issues raised both by the film and day's talks around educating our children for the fourth industrial revolution that is unfolding at the speed of light.

This screening is presented by the non-profit connectors, collaborators and cocreators here at STEAM Co. in partnership with The Institute of Imagination.

  • Leah Stewart - National College of Teaching

  • Rod Judkins - author and creativity lecturer St Martins

  • Savannah Gbamien Simms - gig economy striver/thriver

Building on great work

Speaking ahead of the event, Nick Corston, co-founder of STEAM Co said:

“Amazing work is being done for our children in our schools across the country by amazing teachers, working with their communities. After all, as we say at STEAM Co. it takes a whole village to inspire a child.

But the education system they work within was designed over a hundred years ago and a lot has changed. Our children certainly have. This evening gives us a chance to stop and think about it.

To engage and flourish in tomorrow's world, our young people need to be encouraged, taught even, to create, collaborate and innovate. 

I am very much looking forward to watching the film with carers*, creatives, teachers, headteachers, governors, employers, academics and local government representatives, and hearing what they have to say about evolving education in the UK."

* Carers: people who care for/about children and all our futures. They may be parents, guardians, pre-child, not having children, empty nesters, creatives, technologists, secondary/higher education students, etc, etc.

Film synopsis (from distributor)

MLTS explores compelling new approaches that aim to revolutionise teaching as we know it. After seeing this film, the way you think about “school” will never be the same.

Over a century ago, education underwent a dramatic transformation as the iconic one-room schoolhouse evolved into an effective system that produced an unmatched workforce tailored for the 20th Century. As the world economy shifts and traditional white-collar jobs begin to disappear, that same system remains intact, producing potentially chronic levels of unemployment among graduates in the 21st Century.

The film follows students into the classrooms of High Tech High, an innovative new school in San Diego. There, over the course of a school year, two groups of ninth graders take on ambitious, project-based challenges that promote critical skills.

MLTS points to a transformation in learning that may hold the key to success for millions of our youth – and our nation – as we grapple with the ramifications of rapid advances in technology, automation and growing levels of income inequality.
