Download the Catch! app to earn £2,500 science vouchers for St John's School
Ipswich Borough Council, Suffolk County Council and St John's Primary School are working together on an exciting home-to-school transport project.
At the heart of the project is an app called Catch! - this is a real time journey planner that is currently in development and funded by Innovate UK, the Government-funded innovation agency.
How will Catch! benefit your school?
- The app will capture real time information on travel patterns, journey times and congestion on the commute. The data will be anonymous and will help the school and councils to make better transport plans.
- As a thank you for taking part in the project, St John's will be eligible for £2,500 to go towards science resources for the school.
- The Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre at the University of Suffolk will host two half day inspirational science events with Innovate UK and the Transport Systems Catapult.
