Over 200 MiM students from IE Business School took on an ambitious Splash Project. It would have been ambitious even without the snow and icy temperatures. And it would have been ambitious even without the pandemic. The students were asked to build a western-themed playground from scratch in just 5 days. They had no prior building experience and the students hadn’t met each other prior to the project. (The project took place in the first week of their Master in Management programme.)

An early year’s playground at St Paul’s primary school in Whitechapel that caters for 55 three-to-five year olds was revitalised as part of a project by Splash Projects in November 2020. The area, which had play structures closed off by inspectors during the summer, is vital for the children who use it – with many living in nearby high rise flats with no alternative outdoor space. The need became even greater with Covid restrictions returning to the capital. The project also afforded data consultancy DTSQUARED an invaluable yet safe way of reconnecting with each other after months of working from home.
