    It would depend on the ability of your students. There are only has 5 parts on the board, plus the various off board connections. Most people do it as a year 7 or year 8 project. If you want to evaluate one then schools can request a free sample. With regard to the base any material will do, wood is fine or we have some pictures of vacuumed formed cases, just click the camera icon by the ordering info.

    These kits are supplied with a reel of the solid core cable and a reel of the flexible cable. It is not possible to supply half a reel of cable, hence why we only sell them as a box of 24.
