Robotics Kit.

We currently offer a range or learnable kits to help introduce more STEAM into your classroom, these include:

  1. Dot and Dash Robotics Learnable – The Dot and Dash learnable kit helps students to learn the language of coding and how to use this knowledge to program the Dot and Dash robots to complete tasks. 

    The resources and activities in this learnable are designed to encourage students to work collaboratively, communicate effectively with each other, problem-solve, and self-manage their time. 

    Equipment included:

    • Class set Dash robots x10 

    • Class set Dot robots x5  

    • Xylophone accessories x2  

    • iPads x10 

    • White board mats x2  

    • Pen accessories x6  

    • Map mats x2  

    • Other accessories by negotiation  

    • Website with activity and resource information 

  2. Electricity Learnable - Using this resource kit, students will be introduced to the concepts of electricity, conductivity, static charges, and circuits.  

    The electricity learnable sparks curiosity in students by giving them a set of surprising experiments to complete. It then allows them to dive deeper into the subject through further study and exploration of the Brainbox circuitry equipment.  

    Equipment included:

    • Brainbox  

    • Base boards x20 

    • Battery Packs x24 

    • Wiring 

    • Light bulbs x40 

    • Sirens and speakers x20 

    • Various resistors, fans, LEDs and specialised equipment  

    • Instruction manuals x13 

    • Static electricity experiment box x1 

    • Conductor and insulator box x1  

    • Accompanying website with activity and resource information 

  3. Lights and Mirrors Learnable - Explore physical world science with MOTAT’s Lights and Mirrors learnable. Students will seek to answer questions such as: 

    What is light? 

    Why are the things we see particular colours?  

    What happens when light bends?  

    Why do we see our reflection in some things but not in others?  

    Through these experiments, students will learn more about the world around them, the scientific method, observational skills, and working collaboratively. 

    Equipment included:

    • Peeping box  

    • Sources of Light cards  

    • Shadow experiment kit 

    • Refraction experiment kit 

    • Colour Kit 

    • Colour wheel 

    • Mirror kit 

    • Mini stages x3 

  4. Magnets Learnable - The Magnets learnable will introduce students to the concepts of magnetism, polarity, magnetic fields and electromagnetism. 

    This kit gives students all that they need to broaden their knowledge of magnets beyond the kitchen fridge. It dives into real world magnetic applications like motors, compasses, electricity generation, and more.  

    Equipment included:

    • Magnets: 

    Horseshoe x6 

    Wand x31 

    Bar x12 

    Ring sets x6

    • Perpetual motor kit x2 

    • Compass kit x9 

    • Faraday torches x2 

    • Neodymium magnets x5 

  5. Turing Tumble Learnable - The Turing Tumble classroom kit gives students an opportunity to build their own marble powered computers! Designed to be used in pairs, Turing Tumbles strip back computers to their most basic form and help users to understand exactly what is going on beneath the hood of their devices.  

    Turing Tumbles are an incredibly creative, non-screen way to teach students about coding, logic, and binary. Better yet, students manage their own progress through following an exciting comic book story that contains all the challenges.  

    Equipment included:

    • Turing Tumbles x15 

    • Hand trolleys x2 

    • Containers x3  

  6. Micro:bit Learnable - Micro:bits are pocket sized computers that teach students a vast range of digital skills. Using challenges from the Micro:bit website, students can program Micro:bits to play games, get active, create animations, and even protect local ecosystems!  

    MOTAT’s Micro:bit kit also comes with additional specialised equipment such as streetlights, LED lights, and game controllers to allow students to program familiar, real world objects.  

    Greatly improve your student’s computational thinking skills and collaborative skills with MOTAT’s micro: bit learnable.  

    Equipment included:

    • Micro:bits x30 

    • Streetlight LEDs x10
