A group of children from Johanna Primary School near Lower Marsh in Waterloo have taken a top prize in a nationwide competition organised by the Science Museum and linked to the Museumâ€™s Stem Project.
With support and encouragement from Lambeth Education Action Zone, two small groups of children designed and made their own web sites, based on a visit to the materials gallery at the museum.
Both sets of children did excellent work. The group comprising Chi An Ha, Rafael Correa Gomez and Andy Lay won second prize in the national under 11 category. They will each receive a digital camera and the school will be presented with a DVD player.
"Well done to the children and to Johanna school. Both web sites are excellent, and it is very pleasing to get national recognition such as this for such innovative projects," said Cllr Anthony Bottrall, Lambeth's executive member for education.
