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.

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 email@example.com
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.
