Robotics Hardware Designed for Education

Our Climate Action Kit offers unparalleled ease-of-use and innovation, setting a new standard for educational technology in classrooms.


Climate Action Kit Breakout Board

The Climate Action Kit Breakout Board acts as the heart, spine and brain of all Climate Action Kit projects. The Breakout Board is powered by an onboard battery (the heart) and transmits code from the micro:bit (the brain) through the board (the spine) to the various robotic components (the limbs).


THE limbs

Robotic Components

Each Climate Action Kit is equipped with a variety of robotic components which allow you to complete several different projects.

Easily code your program to trigger an event or detect when the Touch Sensor has been activated.

Detect and measure the amount of light present.

Follow a path using the three infrared sensors on the Line Sensor. The Line Sensor is also a equipped with a ball and caster to act as a third wheel for vehicle projects.

Create all kinds of colours and patterns in your project with the LED Ring.

Adjust variables or trigger events using the Rotary Dial.

Use the capacitive Moisture Sensor to measure the moisture level of soil.

Sonar Sensors are used to detect the distance between an object and the sensor.

Drive or have continuous movement using the Continuous Servo. Program fixed positions or movements using the Positional Servo.

Pump water from a container to another vessel using the Water Pump and tubing.

THE bones

Building Blocks

To complete each of the Climate Action Kit projects, students will use a variety of press-fit building blocks to create the structure of their prototypes (the bones). 


Robotics like you've never seen it before

The Climate Action Kit features a brand new and innovative technology similar to a reversible phone charger cord – creating an incredibly easy and intuative experience for connecting robotic components. 

What this means for educators:
  • Connecting components only takes a few seconds
  • Cables are reversible - so you can't wire anything backwards!
  • 'Smart components' are automatically detected by the coding program
Forward Education Climate Action Kit components


The easiest robotics assembly you'll ever do.

Intuitive and easy-to-use robotics hardware that teachers will love and students will become experts at.

Interactive Simulators

Receive real-time feedback while you’re coding in Microsoft Makecode! 

The Climate Action Kit’s virtual simulators allow you to test and troubleshoot in real-time. Simply pair your micro:bit and virtual versions of all the robotic components you have connected will show up in your workspace – and function like real-life!

Even more features

Love these features as much as we do?
Here are even more details about the Climate Action Kit’s innovative hardware!


"Daisy-Chain" Robotic Components

Connect robotics components to each other in a 'daisy-chain' for easy project assembly. Microsoft Makecode will automatically detect which components are connected and where they're located.


On-Board Battery

Power all your Climate Action Kit projects for hours and hours with an on-board and rechargeable Lithium ION battery.


Third-Party Compatible Building Blocks

We've designed the Climate Action Kit's building blocks to be compatible with your favourite press-fit plastic bricks - unlocking creativity and expanding building possibilities!
