Students at an Isle of Dogs school will have the chance to build their own robots after receiving £3,000 worth of LEGO resources.
George Green’s School, Manchester Road, is one of just 25 schools across England and Wales to be granted free LEGO Mindstorms learning tools for science, technology, engineering and maths.
After submitting an application film, the school was judged to be one that would benefit most from the resources, and also among the most enthusiastic.
Year 12 student Craig Lockyer filmed and edited the school’s entry, which organisers described as “a stand-out application”.
He said: “I’m proud and happy that the film was so well received and am looking forward to helping out with the science club on a weekly basis.”
