Santander UK recently provided the funding for a project I have want to do for a while; to loan robot arm kits, which are pretty much self-contained, out to schools to see what they come up with. The idea being to provide the kit for a year and the schools taking part write a blog post (or more than one), sharing what they have done.
The chosen kit is the CBiS Education robot arm hub because it comes with the robot arm, cables, raspberry pi, etc as well as screen, keyboard and mouse in one go (see the picture above).
The kits should start going out some of the schools next week.
I am grateful to Santander UK for the funding; CBiS Education for their support and advice so far; last but not least the schools who have enthusiastically expressed an interest in taking part.
