Boris Johnson visited the WLIoT at Uxbridge College on May 26th. which was National Thank A Teacher Day. As well as meeting students and staff and seeing demonstrations of WLIoT’s state-of-the-art technologies, Mr Johnson took the time to leave a message on the Thank a teacher website, saying:
“To all the teachers at Uxbridge College and the WLIoT I just want to say what an amazing job you have been doing. I am bowled over by the knowledge and enthusiasm of the students I have met. You are the future! Best Wishes Boris Johnson.”
Mr Johnson visited three of the WLIoT workshops. He was given a demonstration of a 3D composite printer and hydraulic bench with boat testing solar power and wind power systems. He also met students who were conducting surveying and field techniques outdoors.
Dr Darrell DeSouza, CEO and Principal of HCUC, said: “We would like to thank our local MP Boris Johnson for taking the time to visit us at West London Institute of Technology and for his kind words on Thank a Teacher website. The IoT initiative has significant potential to impact career prospects of a wide range of students and supply vital workforce skills for our industries. We are really appreciative of the support provided to date by our key stakeholders, including Boris Johnson as will as the Minister of State for Higher and Further Education, Michelle Donelan, the local authority and all our employer and community partners.”
