Kits

These kits include all materials needed and full instructions. Simple hand tools and a glue gun are needed to complete most of them. Batteries are included where required and motors have wires soldered-on.

Please note: some of these kits make more than one artefact.

Please Note: Kits highlighted in Pink are also available as classpacks at a cheaper per-head cost. See the 'Classpacks Page' for more details.

Videos demonstrating how to make most of these kits can be viewed on my 'How-to-Make Videos' page here:

If you would like me to make up any of the other kits (not highlighted in pink) into classpacks it may be possible.... email me at pnewham@ivydale.southwark.sch.uk

Kits are useful if you want to provide bagged projects quickly to pupils (e.g. after-school clubs, home tuition etc.) but if you want more than x15 the classpacks are much better value.
