What's been happening at Future Box this week...

Future Box News

Over the next few weeks we will be working in collaboration with The Little Devices Lab at MiT. We are going to be using one of their kits to develop lessons on biology and chemistry in school. 

We are also going to be working with Hackaball, a computer programmable ball. We are going to help develop lessons and resources for them and also the Future Box. 

 

Heber Primary School News

Over the past few weeks at Heber Primary School, the children have been involved in some mini hack-a-thons where they have been testing  all of the kit that will eventually be in the box. These taster sessions have been a great success and the feedback from the pupils has been really positive.

 

The highlight of the hack days has been the Ozobot. This little robot has allowed children as young as 5 to learn how to code with colour. The children have been using felt tips to investigate simple code. Blue, green blue, for instance, makes it speed up. Whereas Red, blue, green might make it do a U-turn, or take the next left.

 

 

We have just secured confirmation of the Future box Nao Robot and we look forward to introducing this to lessons and the curriculum over the next term.

 

 

We have also been visiting Makerversity, and are going to be trying out a series of lessons which utilise making and creativity.
