In our sessions, we build all our models using the excellent Lego WeDo 2.0 kit. This comes with all the Lego bricks, motors and sensors you’ll need.
We encourage all our students to get hold of one of these themselves for convenience and hygiene and also because they just make a great addition to your existing Lego kit. If you thought your models were cool before, you can now make them move and talk!
Local kit hire
If you don’t have your own kit, we do have a limited number of kits to lend out if you live locally. At the moment, we can only deliver to the following postcodes :
KT1, KT2, KT3, KT5, KT6, KT7
We ask for a £100 refundable deposit and £10 hire fee per session and each kit can be used by up to 2 people.
The kit will be dropped off at your house and picked up after the session. All kits are thoroughly disinfected before being lent out.
The deposit will be returned after the kit has been checked back in.
If you live outside of these postcodes and really want to take part, send an email anyway and we’ll see if we can come to an arrangement.
If you’re certain you want a kit, you can buy one on Amazon or our favourite supplier Raising Robots for around £200.
We also have a number of pre-owned kits available to buy. Because we have a limited number of these, we like to make sure that you are absolutely certain it’s right for you, so only offer these for sale to users who have had one trial session first.
