Education charity pays for brand new science lab at Nottingham primary

A Nottingham primary school has received a brand new science lab worth £2,500 from the Ogden Trust.

The new Phiz Lab was funded entirely by the charity, and will allow students at Springbank Primary School to perform science experiments in what was an unused room.

Fitted out with lab coats, goggles, test tubes and resources to carry out practical science experiments, the lab will also be used by eight other local schools who are members of the Ogden Trust’s Nottingham City Primary Partnership.

The Ogden Trust exists to promote physics teaching and learning, and has helped around 20 schools across England set up their own science labs through the grants, which pay for a redesign of an existing room, as well as equipment.

“The Phiz Lab has transformed science at the school,” said Emma Leonard, a teacher at the school. “It has given children the chance to experiment in a scientific way, which has led to children using their inquiry-based skills to improve their own learning.”

The labs are currently offered to schools in Ogden Trust Primary Partnerships. To find out more, click here.
