FUNMATHS ROADSHOW KITS

An activity that we can offer and organise for you in your school, FunMaths Roadshow is a collection of mathematical activities/puzzles displayed on A3 laminate baseboards. Each box caters to a specific year group/ability level and provide pupils with the opportunity to: problem solve; explore ideas and have fun with Maths. Pupils are encouraged to work together through the puzzles presented, at their own pace discussing each problem in turn, in a non-competitive setting.

 

BBC Micro:bits

We have 20 of these little codeable devices with lots of features! The micro:bit can be used to inspire young people to get creative and develop skills in science, technology and engineering. Each element is completely programmable with an easy-to-use software on a dedicated website (www.microbit.co.uk) that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 - S1 > S6

Using the most advanced technology LEGO has developed so far, pupils can now create and command 5 different robots that walk, talk, think and do anything they can imagine. We have 2 of these available.

K’Nex Kits - P1 > S6

Boxes of K’Nex are available, which can be used for any technical activity or an indispensable resource for budding engineers. Pupils can progress from the basic level of simple stationary structures with no moving parts, through structures with movement using rotation and moving into more complex machinery and hand driven mechanisms.
