Could Nintendo Labo and Nintendo Switch be the tools to help bring a new dimension to education? We've pondered that very same question on Nintendo Life, and now it seems some schools here in the United Kingdom see some real potential for the cardboard creations of Ninty's latest project.

According to a report by GamesIndustry.Biz, Nintendo has been, "approached by several schools about getting Labo in front of their pupils." We don't know yet how many schools this refers to, or whether such a move would be enough to bring the UK Department of Education into the conversation, but it's an incredibly exciting prospect nonetheless. After all, Switch has long held the potential to segue into education in a way no other console has been able to. From the basic engineering principles of building each kit, to promoting coding principles in the Toy-Con Garage, Labo could properly open the door for video games in schools.

So what do you think about the potential of using Nintendo Labo in schools? Does it have the potential to educate as much as does the power to entertain? Let us know what you make of it in the comments below...
