‘Panda fever’ grips pupils as welcome celebrations spread to schools

Stripe worked with the Scottish Government to spread ‘panda fever’ to school children across Scotland with a specially created panda roadshow.

The educational project took place in six schools across the country including in Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Borders, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness. A giant panda mascot greeted scores of excited kids at the visits, which were part of the Scottish Government’s celebrations to welcome the giant pandas Tian Tian (Sweetie) and Yang Guang (Sunshine) to Scotland.

Pupils learned about Scotland’s links with China and also found out more about the bears, who are the first giant pandas to live in the UK in 17 years. The youngsters were also keen to show off their creative skills to the panda mascot as they designed masks, drew pictures and sung songs to welcome him to their school.
