Lynn’s Learning Resources has won an award for its innovative range of educational kits designed for primary school children.
The Bergen Way-based company, which manufactures and supplies educational toys and learning aids, has gained a Best Product Innovation award for its STEM in Action products. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It defines an approach to learning that asks children to solve problems in several ways, including by hands-on experimentation, trial and error and self discovery.
The award was presented at the 2016 Findel Supplier Awards held at Manchester United Football Conference Centre. Findel Education Resources are the UK’s leading independent educational resources supplier.
Launched in January, the range comprises of six teacher-friendly kits meeting the STEM needs of primary classrooms.
Hannah Searle, STEM in Action manager, said: “Our exciting range of comprehensive hands-on kits for primary school children provide Key Stage 1 and 2 teachers with digestible and intuitive STEM projects.
“Each ready-to-use kit will save teachers up to 12 hours in preparation and planning, by providing teachers with everything they need right out of the box including lesson plans, activity sheets, homework ideas and assessment tools. Primary teachers will not only save valuable time, but will see their confidence grow and the student’s attainment levels increase in the ever important area of STEM learning.
“Working in close partnership, Learning Resources and Findel Education have mutually benefitted from each other’s product development experience, distribution channels and sales and marketing expertise, to be the first to bring such an innovative range to market.”
Darren Baxendale, purchasing manager at Findel Education said: “Findel acknowledged the STEM in Action range from Learning Resources in this award as it was everything we were looking for in a supplier. The partnership and product innovation displayed in the STEM in Action range is a perfect fit for Findel’s customers, and the close working relationship Learning Resources has with Findel is of great benefit to both parties.”
