Celebrating World Creativity & Innovation Day with LEGO at Cubbington Mill Care Home and Young Engineers Warwick ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Well Done Everyone.
Staff and residents at Barchester’s Cubbington Mill care home in Leamington had a wonderful time celebrating World Creativity & Innovation Day on 21 April 2022. The residents were super excited to be the first to trail a new and innovative interactive problem solving session using LEGO.

Our residents were tasked with creating their very own motorised fairground carousel courtesy of Lead STEM Instructor Maninder Kaur Laxhman, Young Engineers Warwick.

Young Engineers Warwick offer a series of programmes and workshops that provide theoretical knowledge and practical implementation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Now in their golden age our residents were unsure if they had the skills to create such a fascinating model. On handling each piece they were taken back to their younger days using plastic building blocks.

Maninder was amazing, she guided the group through every step. Working with the small building block pieces was at first a challenge for some, but soon they all found the dexterity and motor skills to handle and solve the puzzle. The joy on their faces in completing the model and flicking the switch to see every carousel come to life was ground-breaking.

It goes to show, whatever your age, learning new skills can enrich your life for the better. We look forward to working with Maninder and the Warwick Young Engineers on tailoring future workshops for the residents within each of our homes.

General Manager, Laura Russell, said: “We have all been inspired by Maninder and her workboxes full of Lego! It was so interesting to see how our residents would react and interact with the small plastic blocks, many have reduced dexterity yet excelled with minimal support. Watching the carousels in motion was a triumph for all participants. Our residents love to learn new things so they were really keen to get stuck in.”

Christine Clarke a resident, said: “I’ve not tried to use Lego since my children were young, I’m surprised how easy I found reading the instructions and managed to get the carousel spinning.”

Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.

We are welcoming new residents into our homes to ensure that we are there for those that need care and support. Please do give us a call on 01926 430 351 if you are looking for care or need any further help. To find out more, please visit https://www.barchester.com/home/cubbington-mill-care-home

Cubbington Mill care home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering personalised care across its care homes and hospitals. Cubbington Mill provides residential care and nursing care for residents from respite care to long term stays.

And that's a wrap!
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for a great first year for Young Engineers Warwick. I launched Young Engineers last Christmas with the hope of reaching 100 children and to date we have taught 620 amazing young engineers plus 75 adults 💚
It really warms my heart to see how much the children (and grown ups) have enjoyed our sessions.
Wishing you all a wonderful festive break and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

So much creativity from our students King Henry VIII Preparatory School They learnt about 90 degree transmission and used crown gears and worm gears. They all executed the mechanism beautifully and showed their creative side.

29/11/2022

Come and join us with our Christmas Engineering Workshops. We have two sessions running on Tuesday 20th December Finham Park School perfect for 6 to 12 year olds.

28/11/2022

We hit the ground running today at Bablake Junior and Pre Prep with our Young Engineers learning about the mechanisms in a music box and using snail gears to slow down transmission.

Mrs Twaites reported this group carried out some fantastic adaptations showing a great understanding of 90 degree transmission. Well done all.

17/11/2022

Our Young Engineers at King Henry VIII Preparatory School had so much fun yesterday they didn't want the session to end!

16/11/2022

A great start to this week's model at Bablake Junior and Pre Prep school. The students learnt about the advantages and disadvantages of belt and gear transmission and built cars using combination transmission.

14/11/2022

Some highlights from our workshops yesterday. A huge thanks for all those that participated, we loved seeing you all build and adapt your models and persevere while problem solving. We especially loved seeing the spark of creativity from the parents!
Thanks again to Warwick Institute of Engagement and Coventry Transport Museum for hosting.

Mrs Twaites was so impressed with these Young Engineers yesterday and said "This class has already started to work with what they have learnt and are adapting their models with confidence."
Well done all.

12/10/2022

Such a lovely group of students to work with at Bablake Junior and Pre Prep on Monday at our weekly class.
Apologies for the delay in posting, we have so much footage to get through.
They all worked so well and had great fun playing with the conveyor belts they made.

06/10/2022

Fun experimenting and learning with belt transmission.

03/10/2022

This week our Bricks Challenge students are learning all about belt transmission and how it's used to spin the drum in washing machines.

This particular class took experimenting to another level by putting their (smelly) socks 🧦 in their models to test out! 🤣

Drop us a socks 🧦 emoji if you like the way our students work 🧦

Finding out all about belt transmission and how washine machines operate.

29/09/2022

Experiential learning in action. Our students learn by doing and then reflect on the process. They were able to use their reflections to think of other ways in which they could lift their "crate" and were then able to adapt their models.

28/09/2022

We love to celebrate our students and these two superstars showed resilience and perseverance. Lots of building, dismantling and rebuilding with many failed attempts. However, they both persevered, never gave up and didn't lose heart. Well done to them both for being determined and completing the build regardless of the challenges they faced.
