Frequently Asked Questions

Is this just for teachers?
No, definitely not. We design classes to be useful in the classroom but they're enjoyed by students, parents, youth groups - anyone really!
What's included?
There's around 10 minutes of step-by-step video + a Teachers' Pack + a detailed build transcript, giving you all the steps.
What age level is this suited to?
We have designed this project for late primary school / early secondary school age levels. Content is aligned to learning outcomes under KS2 science topics in the UK but would obviously link up well to curricula in other locations too.
