On Thursday 8th May 2014 Embrace Cooperation Ltd staff and volunteers worked with St Joseph’s College students and staff to investigate different areas on Streatham Common, Lambeth.

It had been stated by several authorities that Streatham Common is one of Lambeth’s most important sites in nature conservation – not to mention it is home to the largest area of acid grassland and woodland in the Borough.

35 students from St Joseph’s College STEM club (STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics) came to Streatham Common and carried out a series of survey test at different locations. The student’s tested light, wind, temperature soil ph and soil temperature at various selected locations on the common. This activity will count towards the students STEM curriculum that shall lead to a recognized qualification.
