£1K prize money making a difference

Breaking the radio silence today with fantastic #Voom news today - Explorium was the lucky winner of the £1K prize money that Crowdfunder and Virgin Media Business are giving away each week. We'll put this straight into our Clios pot to make our innovation affordable for local schools. Clios stands for Credit for Learning from the Inside Out - which is what we do - we look to see what makes a child tick and then we create learning opportunities for them to create, explore and discover. £1K will fund 100 hours of learning with us. Motivated by this prize, and the fact that more schools are contacting us to enquire about how we can collaborate with them to help 'switch' their students on to learning, we're going to open up our crowdfunder campaign again. Thank you to all those that supported us in the first leg of our campaign - your t-shirts and memory sticks and other rewards will be with you soon. You can see your name on our Changemakers wall at the bottom of our home page www.explorium.co.uk and we will be posting regular updates on our social media of the difference your pledges have made over the next few months. If you didn't pledge before but would like to get behind us now then please visit our page http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/explorium/.

If you know of any schools near Compton Dundon, Ansford or in Bristol that you think would like to collaborate with us do let us know. We're looking to hold some Explorium Pop-Ups in Bristol in the Autumn term - so looking for host schools to come on board - and happy to hold some of our Clios in reserve for the first school to get in touch.
