The new technology teaching schoolchildren about road safety

An augmented reality app, which teaches road safety lessons to children, is to be rolled out across the country after being trialled in Warwick.

The Year Three pupils at Westgate Primary School who have been using this new method gave a demonstration to the Transport Minister this week.

The lessons are particularly important for this school, as the entrance is on a busy road in Warwick Town centre.

The learning here will be used to develop the system before its eventually rolled out nationwide.
