‘Just see what happens…’
Like the famous art studio, Room 13, (www.room13scotland.com) imagine a lab managed by young people for young people where they can experiment, play, invent, design, solve problems, explore, work alongside a scientist/designer/engineer in residence… and so much more. Sounds like a dream? Well, it has become a reality for six schools in the region. The inspirational schools, both primary and secondary, across the East Midlands now have Lab_13's, all with inventor/scientists-in-residence. For up to date information on how all our Lab_13's are getting on, follow their blog, updated by the students themselves, www.lab13network.wordpress.com.
Crown Hills Lab 13, along with their Scientist in Residence, Tom Carter, headed off to Genoa for the Genoa Science Festival, to show how creative science should be done! We have collected some of the groups favourite experiences from the Science Festival below.
