Primary Entry

Everything You Need To Put STEAM & Robotics In Your School

The Primary Entry kit contains everything you need to start integrating STEM/STEAM projects into your school’s curriculum.

Students will explore robotics, build crazy vehicles and weather forecasting all while learning to code within the framework as specified by the National Curriculum.

Teachers are fully supported by an array of tools designed to make them comfortable with the EdTech in the kit. Our resources provide an understanding of the equipment and how similar technologies are used in the real world.

SAMLabs Team Kit

For Teachers

SAMLabs blocks are building blocks for the 21st Century - a combination of hardware and software with physical and virtual blocks.

Physical blocks connect to a computer via Bluetooth and each block is rechargeable, divided into inputs like switches and sensors and outputs like motors and lights.

 

It is possible to build autonomous vehicles capable of steering round objects or internet connected door bells that ring when a code is tweeted. The projects are really only limited by your imagination!

SAMLabs will work with Windows, Apple Mac and iPad device.

Students

This is your chance to make your own Rube Goldberg machine. Control motors, servos, lights, buzzers and more. Add in some logic and you can create all kinds of gadgets and gizmos!

SAMLabs will let you explore the real world Internet of Things.

Aercus WS3083 Weather Station from

For Teachers

The Aercus Weather Station is a fantastic project that covers web design, device connectivity, coding and of course meteorology.

You will be able to gather a rolling 3 months of real world data that can be used in maths lessons for plotting graphs, calculating averages, means, maximum and minimums.

The Weather Station's sensor array can be mounted remotely and connects wirelessly to the data display. The display uses a PC to connect to the internet to provide an online weather station, which can be viewed by the entire community.

 

The station monitors temperature, humidity, rain volume, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, light and UV index. It can calculate dew points, windchill and provides storm warnings and short term forecasts.

The web connectivity software will also connect your data stream to the Weather Underground and you can use IFTTT.COM to develop alerts and monitors.

For Students

Not only can see the weather, but you can now measure. You can keep track of which days are wettest or the windiest.

Create programmed reminders when you need a warm jumper or a waterproof coat - and of course your family can see it as well.

Class-VR Kit

For Teachers

The ClassVR headset has been designed for use by students. Students can simply hold and look through the device, or they can use the included head straps for a more comfortable and ‘hands free’ experience.

Tech Details

The ClassVR headset features a fully integrated set of technology, including: a High Definition 5.5 inch display to deliver crystal clear images and videos.

Integrated speakers with volume controls and an audio-out port to connect headphones; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to enable classroom control; 2Gb RAM and 16Gb internal storage to provide on-device content storage and fast performance; and a 4000mAh battery to power the device for the entire school day.

ClassVR also features a front facing 8MP integrated camera, to support Augmented Reality content.

Dash from Wonder Workshops

For Teachers

Dash is a solidly built robot, designed to be used by younger students. All moving parts are concealed within a visually appealing body.

Dash comes with both control and puzzle apps as well as a Blockly based programming interface. Blockly is very similar to Scratch and as the name suggests uses configurable blocks to write programs.

Dash features sound and light as well as sensors that detect objects. Dash can be controlled and programmed from an iOS device.

Dash connects to its controller via Bluetooth, but can also use infrared to connect to other Wonder-Workshops robots.

The top sphere (head) can independently rotate and move up and down. It also has speech/sound recognition and distance sensors with a 12” range, all of these features can be programmed.

Dash Launcher

The Dash Launcher is an add on for Dash that uses the motion of its head to launch small projectiles using a device similar to a trebuchet.

Using the Blockly coding interface students can fire the launcher with varying degrees of force. It can be used to teach both mathematics and physics as different projectiles will behave in different ways.

Sketch Kit

Use Dash's head to control the up/down motion of a pen with the Blockly programming interface.

For Students

Dash is your new best friend, with programmable lights and sound it listens to your voice and can even talk to other Dash robots.

Dash can use it’s sensors to be able to navigate round objects and follow your voice.
