Lighting Up Ayrshire

September 2021

We hope to run a soldering CPD workshop for teachers at Dumfries House in January 2022 in combination with Rampaging Chariots.

Lighting Up starter kits are available for any primary school that has not previously (or recently) taken part in the project and we hope to have top-up kits available for previously participating schools too.

Rampaging Chariot robot kits are available for secondary schools that have built all their kits or have not taken part in the project before.

All teachers and school staff are welcome to come along for refresher training!

Spaces and kits may be limited. Please contact Benjie at bmarwickjohnstone@scdi.org.uk if you are interested.
