As part of Maritime-Submarines’ community engagement strategy, funding has been provided to a local primary school to help enhance pupils’ mathematics skills.
The funding will cover registration costs for students at Askam Village School to log on to ‘Mathletics’, an online international learning tool, to enhance their maths lessons with the fun, interactive resource.
Communications Advisor Laura Lake is responsible for education engagement at Maritime-Submarines in Barrow. She said: “BAE Systems is committed to investing in the local community to improve education and the future prospects of younger generations.
“Inspiring young people to take an interest in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics is a particular priority for us so that we can continue employing leading engineers to design and build world-class submarines for the future.”
More than 160 children from the primary school will be joining pupils from more than 10,000 schools worldwide that have 24/7 access to the Mathletics website. The resource is designed to allow children of all ages to learn at their own pace, but also provides the option for them to improve their speed and skills by competing with youngsters across the globe.
