AVELEY Primary School students are learning how to solve recycling and waste problems through Lego Education robotics as part of a free program.

The school is taking part in Stockland and the National Theatre for Children’s Showdown at Waste World, which is a program based on science, technology, arts and mathematics incorporated with theatre, robotics and software.

Showdown at Waste World will start in WA with a live performance by actors from the National Theatre for Children at the school on March 22.

Deputy principal Kylie Davis said the school was involved in the program last year for the ‘Bee on the Team’ initiative.

“Last month we received our Lego Education learning materials donated by Stockland, which has helped us expand our resources available to our students and staff when solving real world problems at school,” she said.

“The support this free program has offered has meant we are able to engage our students in Stem, providing an innovative and challenging learning experiences for our students across the school.”

Stockland sustainability manager Penny Austin said it was important to ensure the next generation was given skills and inspiration to continue doing sustainable initiatives in the future.
