Active Robots are embracing education. We have products to suit all abilities and needs, from Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4, through to University Level.Our aim is to encourage and develop technology in schools and cross curriculum learning. To promote the desire, to explore, stimulate the imagination and learn STEM subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Through a hands on engaging experience to encourage a whole range of interactive learning. To share ideas, investigation, observation, predicting, problem solving, collecting data and describing outcomes to understand basic principles.
We have a wide selection of affordable educational products for classroom use, group or individual learning. From simple starter kits to advanced kits including links for added learning and optional extra activities, teachers notes, design briefs, extensive support material. A wide selection of individual parts, including Raspberry Pi and parts to enable you to build your own computer or parts to build your own robot, with USB Ports, smart phone compatible and WIFI. A great resource for students to learn to program in Java, Python, Scratch or C/C++ for the Arduino kits.
We offer a 30 day account facility for all educational institutions within the UK.
The digital EV3 Ultrasonic Sensor generates sound waves and reads their echoes to detect and measure distance from objects. It can also send single sound waves to work as sonar or listen for a sound wave that triggers the start of a program.
Students could design a traffic-monitoring system and measure distances between vehicles, for instance. There is an opportunity to discover how the technology is used in everyday items like automatic doors, cars and manufacturing systems.
The digital EV3 Gyro Sensor measures the robot’s rotational motion and changes in its orientation. Students can measure angles, create balancing robots and explore the technology that powers a variety of real-world tools like Segway®, navigation systems and game controllers.
The digital EV3 Colour Sensor distinguishes between eight different colors. It also serves as a light sensor by detecting light intensities. Students can build color sorting and line-following robots, experiment with light reflection of different colours, and gain experience with a technology that is widely used in industries like recycling, agriculture and packaging.
Any curriculum material, software and teaching support related to this product will be available from 10th January. Please check our website from that date for more information.
Designed for primary school classrooms, the WeDo 2.0 Core Set, Software and Get Started Project is a hands-on solution that ignites pupils’ curiosity, enhancing their skills in science and computing. The core set is delivered in a storage box with sorting trays, labels, Smarthub, Medium Motor, motion sensor, tilt sensor, and building elements for two pupils.
