You can use our starter lesson plans directly in your class, or use them as inspiration to make your own!

In our educational resources section we've also got loads of example activities you can use to make your own lessons, or give your kids in code club

The Student Experience

Each time I have done an experiment I have got more into science and robotics, I loved this session

Taking it Further

Marty is designed to hold a Raspberry Pi.

With a Pi on board you can add a camera and get Marty playing football, or use ROS, the Robot Operating System as used in academia and industry

EXPAND

Add extras distance sensors, LED grids, and get your students into some more advanced topics - like solving mazes, or showing how maths be used to predict the movement of a leg or smooth noisy sensor readings.
