Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation

STREAM Education Launched for 2021

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to partner with Sphero Sports to launch STREAM Education, the latest strand in our all-new department, Trinity Education.

STREAM – an acronym for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Maths – has been introduced under the Trinity Education banner for 2021 and will link the use of Engineering and Science with sport, using the brand of Wakefield Trinity.

Through the partnership with Sphero Education, we have invested in robot technology, feeding into a curriculum planned and designed by the Foundation, allowing the children involved to recreate past tries through the use of coding and programming.

Being the first Rugby League side to invest in this software – following the likes of Harlequins, Everton and Aston Villa – this offers a new pull to many schools as we expand throughout the Wakefield area.

Speaking upon the launch of the strand, Head of Education & Training, Luke Shale, said, “We are delighted that we have designed this all-new package to offer to schools situated across Wakefield.

“We are really proud to be in a position to offer this sort of curriculum and we cannot wait to get started.”

While, Head of Corporate & Sports Partnerships at Sphero Sports, Matt Mead, followed, “Being the first Rugby League side globally to invest in the software is quite a powerful thing.

“What it presents is a programme that has not been seen before in Wakefield or the UK, especially in the context of this sport.”

The Foundation is expecting to run taster sessions from May onwards, with the full package likely to be available from September.
