Penpol lead the way with LEGO Robotics!

Mr Woolcock

At the end of last year LEGO Education got in touch with Penpol to see how we were getting on with our WeDo 2.0 robotics sets. After a lengthy discussion on the phone the LEGO team were incredibly impressed with how well the staff and pupils at Penpol were embracing and learning through their kits.  They asked if they might be able to use the school as a Case Study for a future article and we thought no more of it.  Until, that is, we spotted this article in the January 2018 issue of Education Today.

This magazine is sent out to every school in the country and often features a ‘View From The Classroom‘ section.  I’m delighted to say that this months feature is all about Penpol School and our use of the LEGO Robots!  Alongside an interview with myself there are some photos of Will, Alfie, Lily and Freya are featured showing off their creations!

As well as being featured in the magazine, LEGO Education were kind enough to give our four magazine-stars their own ‘Mini Milo’ LEGO pack!  Here’s a photo of the four enjoying their new found fame and free LEGO!


And what exactly does a ‘Mini Milo’ set look like?  I’m glad you asked as they really are quite cute!
