Robot fun for Tonyrefail youngsters

Year 6 pupils from Tref-Y-Rhyg Primary School, Tonyrefail have received a donation of £500 to purchase robot tool kits, to help them improve their understanding of STEM subjects - science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

When we received a letter from pupil Cory Matthews asking for financial support, we stepped in to help.

We donated 5 Robot tool kits to the school, to help them with their Techno Tokyo project. The kits are used to help them build and programme robots, using coding, engineering and robotics.

Deputy Head teacher, Rhian Scott explained: “We are committed to developing fun learning opportunities for the children, this project is ideal to help them learn more about STEM subjects, and they just loved making the robots!”

WPD Corporate Communication Officer, Karen Welch said: “We received a really nice letter from Cory, and as we are keen to support initiatives which can help to encourage youngsters especially girls to participate in more STEM subjects we were pleased to help.

“The more participation pupils have in these subjects the more it can help them in the future when they are looking and thinking of career opportunities.”
