EPro8 School Week
The EPro8 School Week will allow more of your students to get an introduction to engineering.   The package is designed for four classrooms.
It is a three day long STEAM program, with each classroom having access to the EPro8 Construction Equipment for one day.  

The EPro8 School Week includes:
  • Hireage of seven extra sets of EPro8 School Equipment
  • 128 activity booklets - this is a shortened version of the EPro8 Classroom Workbook.
  • Includes reading, writing and practical maths elements
  • Access to online resources
  • A teacher's manual to guide you through the week
  • The top two teams from each classroom will compete in an EPro8 Internal Event
Classroom Lot of Equipment
We will hire and deliver an additional six sets of EPro8 School Equipment.  If your school already owns one set of EPro8 School Equipment, you will now have seven sets to use for the week.  This is enough equipment for 28 students each day.  Spread over four days this is 112 students.

For schools that already own a classroom lot of EPro8 School Equipment then the EPro8 School Week is provided at a reduced price (as this option does not include hiring extra equipment).  
Three Day STEAM Curriculum
The three day curriculum includes:
  • A day of preparation activities
  • A day using the EPro8 Construction Equipment
  • A follow up day to lock in the learning.

The programme is structured to be easy for teachers.
EPro8 Internal Event
The top two teams from each classroom (eight teams) will compete in an EPro8 Internal Event.  This is run in a similar style to the Event Series, complete with live scoring.  

Teams will compete to earn points in a two hour event.  
We will provide challenges, certificates, trophies and access the the EPro8 Live Scoring System.

You will run the event, including the judging, but training and support will be provided.

The top THREE teams from each EPro8 School Week qualify to represent your school in the EPro8 Challenge Event Series.
Online Resources
The EPro8 School Week comes with online resources that will make the learning experience easier and more enjoyable for teachers and students.

This includes tutorials from the EPro8 Engineers, interactive activities and eductational games.
