Pupils at Gaywood’s Howard Junior School are preparing for the future following the opening of an exciting new room at their school.

The dedicated STEM (science, engineering, maths and technology) room was opened by West Norfolk Mayor Carol Bower on Tuesday when she was greeted by a robot.

The room features a raft of equipment and technology relating to those subjects.

There are robots to programme, facilities to learn coding and a state-of-the-art 3D printer.

Headteacher Gregory Hill said: “The pupils think it’s incredible. We want to give our children the best head start possible with STEM.

“We are preparing them for the future and giving them the best digital learning skills.”

The school is one of only 400 in the world to have received Apple distinguished school status.

Every pupil in the school was given their own fitness tracker to help encourage them to lead healthy lifestyles.
