The latest addition to the Callero family of storage solutions, Gratnells MakerSpace trolley is building on a successful launch with the news that it has been named a finalist for a prestigious industry award that highlights and rewards the quality and diversity of education products.
The MakerSpace trolley has been confirmed as a nominee for the GESS Education Awards 2019, in the Innovation Product Awards – Equipment/Hardware/non-ICT category. The award ceremony takes place in February at the leading education show in the Middle East, GESS Dubai, and aims to encourage the raising of educational services and product standards throughout the industry.
The MakerSpace trolley received a Worlddidac award shortly after its launch at BETT in 2018 and is designed to respond to the growing trend for collaborative learning, especially in STEM and STEAM subject areas. Developed and manufactured by Gratnells at its production plant in Harlow, Essex, MakerSpace reflects the growing trend to expand science, technology, engineering, arts and maths subjects in schools.
The award-wining trolley is already being used as a central resource station for collaborative working at one of Europe’s leading educational charities - The Eden Project in Cornwall. It has become a central feature in the LAB education space, where it is used as a resource to support various STEM and STEAM activities, encouraging a hands-on approach to getting involved in the Invisible Worlds exhibition.
Anthony Byrne, Product Manager at Gratnells, was delighted to receive the news, saying “Gratnells MakerSpace, and its role in STEM teaching and learning, is just one part of Gratnells mission to support creative education, collaborative projects and a commitment to STEM and STEAM based learning. We are all keeping our fingers crossed!”
Winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Wednesday 27th February at the H Hotel, Dubai.
