Buying technology can be expensive. To help schools avoid unnecessary costs we have a range of ICT flightcases that we can hire out for you to try before you buy or use as an alternative to buying your own.
All our flightcases have enough resources for teaching a whole class. Try our NEW Micro:bit flightcase or our Computational Thinking flightcase which we have just added new resources too. There are also our Speaking and Listening, Discovery (Science), Movies and sounds, Lego Mindstorms and the Lego WeDo flightcases.
Our flightcases are user friendly, for all abilities including SEN.
So rather than committing to purchasing ICT and computing kit, why not:
try before you buy – hire out one of our flightcases to see if it's right for your school
hire a flightcase to deliver/support a specific area of the curriculum. For example, the Computational thinking flightcase supports whole class teaching of the computation thinking element of the Computing programme of study
Our flightcases and their contents are listed below. For more information on each item click on the link to the complete list of flightcase tools.
