EPro8 School Equipment and Resources
Over 700 schools throughout New Zealand now have their own EPro8 School Equipment.
Many more students in your school can now be exposed to these activities. The EPro8 Challenge is no longer a one off event. Students can now undertake these activities throughout the entire year.
30 accompanying activities mean you can do the EPro8 throughout the year.
$1,100 Subsidy Per School
We want as many schools as possible to have access to the EPro8 School Equipment.
To achieve this, we have worked with our sponsors and suppliers to secure a $1,100 subsidy per school.
The subsidy is ONLY available to schools that take part in the inter-school competition in 2020.
What You Get
The set includes:
60 lengths of aluminium
Bolts and Wing Nuts
Some challenges will require the use of some additional resources that schools will have easy access to locally (such as balloons, card, rubber bands).
NO ONGOING COSTS
The equipment purchase is a one-off expense. Provided your school keeps taking part in the inter-school competition there is no ongoing cost for using the electronics simulator and the online tutorials
WHAT YOU GET
- 20kg of Quality Resources - Over 450 Parts
- 40 hours of classroom resources
- Full access to online electronics simulator
- Extensive online tutorials showing solutions to the challenges
30 different challenges will be available to download. These include:
Party Popper Contraption
30 ONLINE TUTORIALS
These tutorials will show a model answer for each challenge, including an explanation of the engineering principals behind each challenge
FULL ACCESS TO ONLINE ELECTRONICS SIMULATOR
In order to keep the cost down, the electronics are done online using the EPro8 Electronics Simulator.
For example, if you are completing the crane challenge then you will build a crane, and use the crank handle to make a manual crane.
The challenge cards will have a code on them. Enter the code on the online simulator. This will unlock a virtual crane on the simulator that you can then wire up.
Digital Curriculum Ready
The Digital Curriculum is more than just using computers. It is a way of thinking. Of breaking a complex task down into parts. The EPro8 Challenge School Kit is perfect for this. The challenge cards are designed with the Digital Curriculum thinking in mind.
Each EPro8 Challenge School Kit is $1790, but with your $1,100 subsidy your FIRST kit is only $690.
This cost includes Freight and GST.
Multiple kits can be purchased but there is only one subsidy per school.
We have cleared all the initial orders, delivering to over 700 schools. Additional orders will now be sent in the same week that they are received.
