This month you have loved our award-winning STEM Robot Mouse Activity Set, the low cost solution to coding in primary classrooms!
This must-have set provides an introduction to the concepts of coding and STEM learning. We are surrounded by technology like never before including video games, smart phones and tablets. They are all forms of communication that impact our lives every single day and what they have in common is that they all involve coding! This set provides early learners a fun, real-world application of these essential 21st century skills. Children can programme the sequence of steps, and then watch the mouse race to find the cheese!

Learning Resources’ pioneering work in developing hands-on STEM resources, has been recognised for the second time this year with a Findel ‘Best Product Innovation’ Award!
Spring time represents a flourishing stage of development with colourful blossoms and longer daylight hours. With only a few months until the end of the school year, it’s the perfect time to support hands-on learning at home as well as encouraging outdoor exploration and discovery. Learning Resources have introduced over 90 new educational toys and games for 2016, and we have selected a few of our favourites, to highlight the key benefits and skills that they help to support.
