Maths meets art in Devon
More than 15000 straws and joiners were used in this large scale primary maths project organised by the Devon Learning and Development Partnership.
"The maths and art side fitted into the curriculum well, but also the children have had to work collaboratively in teams and solve problems together which are really important life skills.”
- Head of Key Stage 2 Two Moors Primary School
Comments from Two Moors pupils (Years 5 and 6)
"I made a sculpture which combined squares and triangles and involved me decreasing the straws by 10% as it grew taller."
"We’ve learnt a lot about percentages and how structures are made."
A taste of university life at Bangor
“We ordered some molecule kits from Cochranes to support our schools outreach programme. The pupils who attended were all given an aspirin molecule kit to take away with them and were all thrilled to receive a resource which is not available to them at school. We now use Cochranes kits for most of our outreach events and also in some of our first year undergraduate teaching.”
