Lyndon school receives new programme to inspire a passion for STEM
Lyndon School, Solihull in West Midlands, will take part in Coding Success, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programme.
Coding Success aims to encourage the next generation of scientists, engineers and technicians.
It has been developed by The Smallpeice Trust, an educational charity, and Raising Robots, an authorised LEGO® Education partner.
Teachers at the school will be provided with training sessions, six curriculum-linked lesson plans and two LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime kits.
These kits will allow children to get practical experience with robotics and programming.
Natasha Peachey, science teacher at Lyndon School, said: “This partnership gives students a fantastic insight into the world of robotics and the unlimited careers opportunities that are available to them.
“We are currently running the club with Year 9 girls to foster curiosity in underrepresented groups in the sector.”
