The Makey Makey allows you to take everyday objects, like Play-Doh and fruit, and combine them with the internet to create pianos, keyboards, game controllers and so much more.

Technology will save us - Thirsty Plants

How do you know if your plant is thirsty?  Build a solar powered sensor and invent new ways to keep your plant happy.


BeeBots are exciting programmable floor robots allowing you to enhance learning in Literacy, Science and Numeracy through a multitude of activities. Have fun creating and running through mazes whilst learning about sequences, problem solving and estimation.


The pack contains everything you need to get started teaching robotics and the fundamentals of programming. Designed to inspire curiosity, creativity and invention through connected play and coding, SPRK+ is far more than just a robot. Powered by the Sphero Edu app, you can easily learn programming, complete hands-on activities and share your creations with the community. Navigate a maze. Program a painting. Mimic the solar system. Swim across the water. Have a dance party… The only limit is your imagination.
