Wartime Medicine and Innovation, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has brought together a team of young people aged 14-18 from across east London to investigate the WW1 medical history of the East End.

They have used what they learned on three different projects: a medical history trail, a family workshop and creating animations. The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered in partnership with the Royal London Hospital Museum and Archives, and the Science Museum.

After conducting research at the Royal London Hospital Museum and Archives and the Science Museum Archives, the young people worked with Lorena from The Art Trolley to create stop-motion animations about medical innovations arising from WW1.

This involved the young people exploring their artistic skills – take a look at their animations to see how they got on!
