It has only been four days since the robot arms kits, in the project, started going into the schools. As of yesterday half the robot arm kits are in schools - four Primary schools and one Secondary School - a further Secondary school is expected to have one tomorrow. I am looking forward to helping where I can and seeing some of the outcomes; just from the initial conversations ideas around space, code clubs and diversity have all been mentioned.
Here are some of the tweets about what has happened already (not all of them me).

I am grateful to Santander UK for the funding; CBiS Education for their support and advice so far; last but not least the schools who have enthusiastically expressed an interest in taking part. All views are the authors.
