  • Offer Profile
  • CBInformation Systems is based in the UK and develops cutting edge technology and robotic kits to support teachers with the shift from ICT to Computer Science. CBiS Education kits come as either a 4Wheel Drive car or Robot Arm version and are supported by a Custom Moodle VLE, filled with resources.
Product Portfolio
  • CBiS Education Kits - programming with real world integration

  • September 2014 will see the new Computing course being taught in schools and the abolishment of ICT. This change is only a year away and in that time schools have been tasked with the job of putting in place the framework for the new course.

    The government has released the aims for the new computing curriculum. All pupils will have to:
    • understand the fundamental principles of computer science
    • analyse and solve problems by applying computational techniques, write a program to solve these problems
    • apply technology including new or unfamiliar technology to analytically solve problems
    • be responsible and competent users of information and communication technology.

    How can schools prepare for this upheaval? By ensuring the teachers have relevant training; and the books, learning aids and equipment are there to give students the best chance.
    We have investigated the changes that schools will have to face and we offer education kits & facilitate teacher training specifically designed for the new computing course and the new skills students will have to be competent in. In order to give schools the most stress-free transition to computing our kits are designed to be easy to teach with and learn from.
      • What are the education kits?

      • The two main kits are the robotic arm and the 4WD remote control car. These may sound like toys however they are so much more. Giving pupils robots to program allows an introduction to computing that is focused on the real world. The robots are not simply aimed at one year group; there is a range of projects and teaching material applicable to all ages and aptitudes.
        Our new kit, the "Emotiv Education Kit" includes an Emotiv EPOC headset and a powerful API. This premium kit is our answer to Special Education Needs as just with the power of thought it can control the other robots or any other integrated hardware.

    Introducing the new CBiS Emotiv Education Kit

    This premium kit comes with an Emotiv EPOC headset, a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction.
    The Emotiv EPOC uses sensors to tune into electrical signals produced by the brian to detect user thoughts, feelings and expressions and sends them to a computer.
    Students will then be able to write a program to interpret those signals into commands to control robots using the power of thought.
    Our kits work together to combine functionality i.e. use the headset to drive the car or move the robot arm just by thinking about it.
    Additional headsets can be purchased after the inital kit purchase. Initial kit purchase includes the cost of the Emotiv development API which allows application development accessing the raw EEG data provided by the headset.
      • The Kit which comes in a robust lockable flight case contains:

        • Emotiv Epoc Headset
