As you may have seen on social media over the weekend, Twig World and Imperial College London were at the Educational Resource Awards 2017, hosted at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham.
We are thrilled to announce that of our two finalist nominations, we won the award for best Free Educational Resource for Reach Out Reporter, in partnership with Imperial College London.
Reach Out Reporter is an online primary science news service that helps teachers to integrate topical science into everyday teaching and learning. Teachers can introduce topics using short films based on the latest news or issues in science, and complete a lesson using classroom resource Tigtag.
Beating off stiff competition from TES, Promethean, National Geographic and Which?, this award is the first for Reach Out Reporter, and is a huge achievement for all involved, especially considering it's just over four months old!
