Junior members of the school council were lucky enough to be invited along to be the first official visitors of the new Lego Innovation Studio in Rhyl recently.
The Studio has been devised to create and inspire engineers of the future.
G2G Communities CIC have teamed up with LEGO Education to develop the facility that will teach children technology, maths and engineering skills by using the LEGO equipment. It is the first such facility in the UK.
Moira Lockitt, G2G Communities CIC Director, said: “The LEGO programme will make learning Science; Technology; Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects fun and exciting.”
The Studio is based in the new North Wales Innovation Centre (NWIC), within a development by Denbighshire County Council at the Bee and Station Hotel.
Matt Parks, Regional Sales Manager UK & Ireland LEGO Education Europe, said: “Students need to learn skills that are relevant and applicable for their and our futures and it is great to see local organisations stepping up to help that happen.”
Our School Councillors were really wowed by the technology, especially the Lego robots, and greatly enjoyed trying out the challenges that had been created at the studio. Take a look at the pictures below to see what they got up to.
We would like to say a big thank you to G2G Communities for their invitation and wish them success with their project.
Croeso to our school website! We believe that every step of your child's education is as important as the one before. With this in mind, we strive continually to provide inspiring learning experiences for children.
