PUPILS at a Neilston school have been putting their creative minds to good use.

A series of ‘maker spaces’ are in place in classrooms at St Thomas’ Primary, where youngsters use tools to figure out how things are assembled and how they work.

Principal teacher Claudia Kearney said the aim is to promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) subjects.

She added: “We can provide opportunities to explore and improvise with low-cost materials like cardboard boxes, rolls of tape and simple tools, as well as free time to explore and experiment.
