PUPILS from the Mainstream Autism Base at Parkside Middle School and Meadows First School have been putting their entrepreneurial skills to the test by completing a Dragons’ Den Project.
Inspired by the new Bromsgrove Sports and Leisure Centre development, they have designed a new swimming pool, researching and planning the new types of leisure facilities which could be available.
They have used their maths skills of plotting graphs, analysing data, calculating perimeter and area and design technology attributes to create a scaled model.
Memorising and performing a healthy eating poem tested their English skills and the children enjoyed making and tasting a healthy snack menu for the leisure centre café.
The children were also invited to Bromsgrove’s David Lloyd sports centre where they were given a tour and made their presentations to the sales and marketing manager Amy Jane-Frost.
She presented them with awards for practical design, creative design and presentation and pitch.
She said the children had worked very hard on their projects.
