Please welcome Lab_13 Rosehill

We are delighted to announce a new Lab_13 in Nottingham, at Rosehill School – which works with children with autism.. Lab_13 Rosehill has been made possible thanks to a grant from the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

Featured here, and in a rather blurry photograph (sorry Betti) is the Lab_13 Rosehill Scientist in Residence, Betti Copperwood. In sessions this week the children have been exploring light – in projections, in light boxes and shadows..

We are excited and delighted to welcome Lab_13 Rosehill to the family of Lab_13s.. and hope that the Student Management Committees and Scientists in Residence across the network will send messages of support and ideas and suggestions to link up.  Lab_13 Rosehill doesn’t have a Student Management Committee yet, but we hope that as their confidence grows and familiarity with working with Betti, a group of children will emerge to take on more responsibilities for the Lab_13 space and the science questions to explore there.

Future projects to get Lab_13 Rosehill started will include Sensory Science activities, and work with the University of Nottingham Inflativerse – the mobile planetarium.

Exciting times and we wish everyone at Lab_13 Rosehill good luck and good science.
