Futuristic lessons scoop award for teacher Niles

TOP teacher Niles Puttesmans’ fun futuristic lessons won him an award after he switched his pupils on to the potential of building robots.

Mr Puttesman took a team of youngsters from St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Wath to the VEX IQ challenge at the NEC in Birmingham.

The school — the only primary competing — came 21st out of 43 and the students won a share of a £200 prize pot after their creation outsmarted the exhibition hosts’ own robot.

Mr Puttemans, who works at Wath Comprehensive, was awarded the VEX IQ Challenge Teacher Of The Year Award for his efforts, which have seen Year 5 and Year 6 pupils learning all about robots in their IT lessons.
