D&T Class Packs:

These packs are a low-cost way of resourcing a whole-class D&T workshop in your school.

Class packs include all* the materials and components needed to make x30 artefacts. Also included are copies of the kit instructions. 'YouTube' videos showing how to make these projects can be found on this page or on my YouTube channel at 'Ivydale Science & Technology Service'.

*The CP15 Boat Classpack requires pupils to provide their own small plastic drink bottles.

If the project features motors they are supplied with wires soldered-on. I try to prepare anything else that might be a 'hassle' for the class teacher/TA....  e.g. wires on connectors, battery holders and buzzers have pre-stripped ends.

Different pack sizes (e.g. x23, x57, x90 etc.) can be supplied 'bespoke', priced 'pro rata'.

Minimum classpack size: x15.

Please allow 14 days delivery time for classpacks (I will always try to be quicker).

CP2        Elastic Band Rollers class pack: enough materials to make x30 elastic band rollers. The wood is supplied pre-cut to size as standard. I can supply it in un-cut lengths if you want your pupils to measure and cut it up on request.

You will need to provide x240 drawing pins (or access to glue guns). Suitable for Yr3+ if pupils are cutting the wood. Younger pupils could make them if wood is supplied pre-cut.  15.00 +VAT + P&P  (Different pack sizes are available priced 'pro rata').
