How it Works

  • Hubs can loan kits out, one per school, for either half or a whole term at a time.  
  • The school should contact the hub initially to state which kit and which term they would like to loan for  
  • The hub books the kit out, depending on availability  
  • If the kit has not been loaned before, the school/teacher will need to complete a short 90 minute training session on how to use it – training can either be here at Newstead or we may be able to arrange to come to you with the kit. (The hub will liaise and schedule the training session)  
  • The school needs to sign a Loan Request Form (provided by the hub), agreeing to replace any missing parts if necessary   
  • The school returns the kit (dates agreed with the hub)  
  • On completion of the loan term, the school should complete our feedback form Physical computing hub kits: Feedback form for schools (

(Kits are very popular and always booked out so must be returned in time for the next term loan)
