The ODA Construction Crew has launched the Olympic Park 'big build' education kit for schools.
The ODA, for the uninitiated, stands for the Olympic Delivery Authority, and its 100-strong Construction Crew is comprised of students from 65 local schools, who have followed the progress of the Olympic Park – from muddy hole in the ground to world-class sports venue – first-hand since 2008. The Crew were joined for the launch by Olympic Gold medal-winning sprinter Marlon Devonish and ODA Chairman, John Armitt.
The ‘big build’ kit is designed for children aged from 7–19 and includes fact sheets about each of the Olympic venues and information about those that have helped make the project a reality, along with images, architects’ drawings and maps, and activity ideas for the classroom.
Schools can access the kit through the official London 2012 education programme, Get Set – head to london2012.com/getset to sign up now.
