Secondary Kit

Robotics, IOT and AI are no longer just buzz words!

A kit packed with best in class educational technology that align with the National Curriculum and provide Real World experience. Robotics, the Internet of Things and AI are no longer just buzz words!

Our Kits are supported by detailed lesson plans that engage and excite students encouraging better educational outcomes.

Our Kits are anchored by Project Based Learning, where students work together to explore and solve problems - honing essential 21st century skills such as collaboration and communication.

While we provide lesson plans and learning journeys for every item in the kit, each component has been selected to provide an open-ended learning experience, enabling students to challenge themselves, all while still meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum

Adventure-Bot from EZ-Robot

For Teachers

The Adventure-Bot will extend your coding lessons from the computer screen into the physical world. Able to use the languages like Scratch and Python that are in widespread use in schools the Adventure-Bot lets you create challenges that visually engage students and have real world analogies.

The Adventure-Bot can be programmed using a either a Windows, iOS or Android device.

 

The Adventure-Bot is powered by the EZ-Robot EZ-B robotics controller, this powerful controller can control 24 servos, connect to up to 8 analogue devices and 3 high speed serial ports.

It has dual processors, one that looks after the control and video functions, the other to deal with communications.

The ‘bot is powered by a Lithium Polymer battery and all physical components can be 3D printed.

For Students

This mighty robot can sing, dance and even tell if you are happy or sad. Better yet you can program it in your favourite language, pretty much anything from Scratch to C++.

You can use a 3D printer to modify the ‘bot, either by changing the colour of the parts or adding whole new functionality such as a dozer blade, a scoop or a shield.

Adventure-Bot not only can be programmed to move and follow instructions, it can also use Machine Vision and AI to understand its surroundings and communicate what it sees.

XYZ DaVinci Junior Pro Printer

For Teachers

The XYZ Junior Printer is a compact device designed for simplicity and safety. All moving parts including the filament reel are enclosed in the case of the printer and the print bed uses a tape system to hold the object being printed steady.

The maximum object print size is 15cm x15cm x 15cm making it ideal for creating objects to work with the Adventure-Bot.

 

The software with the printer handles most types of 3D files including STL files.

For Students

Using software such as TinkerCAD (free) you can create all kinds of things from machines to medallions. Download files from the internet and modify them to print!

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.

Pi-Top Laptop

For Teachers

The Pi-Top laptop is a laptop kit based around a Raspberry Pi. The configurable system allows you to not only code on the Pi, but also to connect a ‘breadboard’ break out board that you can connect switches, lights and buzzers to and then experiment with controlling them.

The kit also provides access to a full curriculum environment including a version of Minecraft that is customised for coding.

 

Everything you need to build a Pi based system, power supply, display, keyboard and OS

For Students

Build your own computer, then program it, load Minecraft and program that!
