Imagine a tomorrow where the most exciting edtech discoveries are brought to your doorstep at no cost…

WELL, THAT TOMORROW IS FINALLY HERE!

We were delighted to have the Big Yellow Bus visiting us. Our students enjoyed the coding activities and the chance to engage with virtual reality products and fascinating robots. The staff involved learned about some cutting edge technologies and commented on the high level of engagement from our students.

Thanks to the staff on the Big Yellow Bus for making it such an interesting morning for our students.

We were very excited about having the technology bus come to Grangewood. The staff were fantastic and very supportive. It was great to be able to meet with Casey beforehand so we knew exactly what to expect on the day.

The children had a fantastic opportunity to try out new equipment with the support of experienced staff. I would definitely recommend it.

" Opportunity to experience as many things as possible is what allows us to grow as individuals and gain wisdom. I believe technology can be a catalyst towards that personal growth. The I.D.E.A.S. Bus has been created to help educational establishments to easily access the ever-changing tech industry and give their students the best possible start. "

WHAT IS THE IDEAS BUS?

The IDEAS bus is an interactive educational platform (on wheels!) designed to help educators discover the latest cutting-edge learning technology, which could all visit your school free of charge.

Do away with confusion in the fast-paced world of EdTech. Let us take the headache out of innovative teaching, so you can focus on what matters most – empowering the next generation of makers, creators and entrepreneurs. Open your doors to the whole new world.

WHAT'S THE CATCH?

It doesn’t just sound revolutionary, it is. You don’t have to buy anything to have the IDEAS Bus visit your organisation. It can be absolutely free. For a free visit, the only thing we ask for in exchange for this tech adventure is some of your time to be educated and feedback to help us improve.

We are obviously looking to build a long term relationship with your establishment whereby we can help you and other schools with information about EdTech. If you would like us to educate your staff or help show your senior leadership ways in which they can help improve learning and save money, we are more than happy to help.
We want to provide your students with a lasting memory about the wonders of technology, not to mention have a cool 40ft Bright Yellow American School bus come visit them.
