BUDDING scientists are putting their skills to the test in a new ‘innovation lab’ at a Kenilworth’s school.
Teachers at Clinton Primary wanted a space to encourage children to explore science, maths, technology and engineering subjects, and to learn more about the region’s manufacturing traditions.
And after a fund-raising campaign and donations from various organisations and local businesses, the school has now opened its new £145,000 lab.
It includes robots and drones for pupils to control, advanced Lego kits for problem solving and items to help them design and test their own ideas.
Headteacher Sam Pater said: “It’s been a fantastic year for all at Clinton and we are delighted with our new facility. We are thrilled to see how engaged children have been when had the opportunity to use the space and the equipment we now have to offer. We’re sure that they will learn a lot about problem solving and collaboration – skills they will take into their other learning.”
