Royal Society backs Midsomer Norton Primary School's garden project
Midsomer Norton Primary School has been given financial help for a garden project.
The school has been chosen by The Royal Society, the UK's national academy of science, for help to enable teachers to work with scientists and engineers. Ten and 11-year-olds at the school have been taking on various challenges as they design the perfect greenhouse for the Let's Engineer a Greenhouse project.
After researching the best design for their plot, teams of young engineers pitched their preferred design to engineer- in-residence Judith McKay, headteacher Damian Knollys and finance officer Kate Durrant.
The panel then chose the best design and the greenhouse was installed in the summer. The children are now preparing to grow their own vegetables.
