A Hemel Hempstead school received a £1,000 donation for new science equipment from Amazon’s Hemel fulfilment centre.

The Astley Cooper School was given the donation during British Science Week, as part of the Amazon in the Community programme.

Amazon is giving £1,000 to secondary schools in areas where it operates across the UK, to support their British Science Week activity.

Members of the Amazon Hemel Hempstead team visited the school and took part in a science activity with students from Years 7 and 8.

General manager Lorenzo Barbo, said: “Science, technology, engineering and maths are some of the core skills used in a multitude of careers today, including those at Amazon.

“We’re really passionate about encouraging young people to consider a future career in these disciplines and when the opportunity came up to support such a great local school with a donation, we jumped at the chance.”
