We are a primary school in Islington, London. We do not have a lab13 yet but we really want one! A few weeks ago we had a fantastic evening at our school, all about lab13. We had some brilliant guests: Blue Peter science expert Steve Mould , who carried out some amazing experiments which had adults and children gasping in amazement , Simon Sigh a famous science writer , who showed us a real Enigma Machine from WW2 and told us all about code breaking. We also heard a fantastic speech from Ignite and Lab13’s very own Rick Hall who told us all about how Lab 13 works in the Midlands and even in Texas ! . We have seen some of the wonderful experiments and adventures you have in Lab13 schools which is why we want one ourselves . At the end of the evening we made Ice cream and went wild !
We are Gillespie school Council and we are taking on the job of Lab 13 Management Committee for our school . Rick explained how other Lab 13’s worked and we then showed him our huge old dusty resources room which is nearly as big as a classroom . Rick said it could be perfect to be turned into a Lab 13 . We have got to raise lots of money now to do this . If we are succesful , we could have London’s first Lab 13 . If any one can help us please contact Gillespie school in Islington!
