Physical Computing Kits
Current research suggests that physical computing is an important tool to engage learners and a strategy to develop their understanding in more creative ways.
We have a selection of kits available for use in your school classroom. The kits can be loaned out for a 6 week period for free. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to borrow the kits. The loan form must be completed and sent in advance to secure a kit.
