ICSAT has a number of courses for colleagues who teach D&T, Engineering and Computing and are aimed at the Arduino and the 8 pin & 14 pin Arduino! We are getting many requests from schools for Arduino courses for GCSE Engineering and STEM, get ahead of the game with these practical hands-on course, with plenty of classroom ready projects and support materials.
Download the latest version of our Pathway to Programmable Components, which now includes mapped programming requirements for KS2, 3 and GCSE D&T.
We now have a wide range of Design Contexts created, these provide a set of Design contexts, suitable support materials along with a wide range of design opportunities. These are available via our Moodle website.
The materials are not directed at any particular Awarding Organisation, but will explore ICSAT's approach to writing stimulus materials to help students get quickly started in their decision making and the iterative design process that follows.
They are also suitable for use from KS3 to GCSE.
e-PACs - Hireable project boxes
ICSAT has been very conscious of the dwindling school finances and the need to develop electronics capability in our learners. To that end we have created a range of project boxes that can be used to develop solutions that use programmable electronics, each e-PAC contains all the pre-built modules, sensors etc required , along with support materials. Each e-PAC can be hired for 6/8 weeks at a time for £75 plus a refundable deposit to cover damage/loss or for the odd set you wish to keep.
If you have any questions please contact us via the usually channels.
