Logo WeDo

Quantity: 2 x 15 Device Kits

Imagine designing, building and programming your very own robotic vehicle! We are always amazed at how quickly and competently primary school pupils take on the challenge of learning through robotics.

Pupils from Year 1 through to Year 6 build and program simple and exciting robots using familiar LEGO® bricks that they know and love, as well as more technical LEGO elements that introduce them to concepts related to machines and mechanisms. Pupils will learn aspects from the computing, science and DT programmes of study. They will be investigating, creating, persevering, testing, learning from their mistakes, and having lots of fun!

The LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 Core Set consists of a Smarthub, motor, motion sensor, tilt sensor and a wide collection of bricks and other building elements. The elements are delivered in a sturdy plastic box with a sorting tray which is great for classroom storage and organisation.

 

MakeyMakey

Quantity: 1 x 18 Device Kit

Makey Makey is an invention kit designed to connect everyday objects to computer keys.

Using a circuit board, alligator clips, and a USB cable, the toy uses closed loop electrical signals to send the computer either a keyboard stroke or mouse click signal.

This function allows the Makey Makey to work with any computer program or webpage that accepts keyboard or mouse click inputs.

Raspberrypipico2

Raspberry Pi Pico

Quantity: 3 x 10 Device Kits

Raspberry Pi Pico is a tiny, fast, and versatile board built using RP2040, a brand new microcontroller chip designed by Raspberry Pi in the UK. From controlling appliances to operating a light display, Raspberry Pi Pico puts the technology that underpins countless everyday operations into your hands.

Programmable in C and MicroPython, Pico is adaptable to a vast range of applications and skill levels, and getting started is as easy as dragging and dropping a file. More experienced users can take advantage of Raspberry Pi Pico’s rich peripheral set, including SPI, I2C, and eight Programmable I/O (PIO) state machines for custom peripheral support.
