Each project offers around three hours of engagement and is delivered in three phases: explore, create, and share.

Lastly, in the share phase students document and present their findings to their peers.

Every project in the pack also contains suggestions for extended learning opportunities entitled “Create More” and “Investigate More”. These extensions provide students with additional challenges to delve deeper into the research, design, building, and programming phases of their project.

The Design Library offers students design and programming support, and contains inspiration models for them to build and modify if they have extra time. This gives students a place to hone their skills; learning new building and programming techniques without direct oversight from the teacher.
