As a teacher from Lockyer District High School I have found the Kitsunei blocks an invaluable tool for expanding the capability of the students. The blocks are suitable for a wide range of grades and have the flexibility that they can be utilised all the way up grade 12. The blocks and kits are really easy to use making the most of plug and play technology and are upgraded periodically to improve and problems with the existing platform. The programming is simple and straightforward and the students really enjoy the endless possibilities of real world problems that can be solved using the Kitsunei platform. You can make Kitsunei as simple or as complex as you want depending on the level of learners that you have. Overall a brilliant STEM resource that is highly recommended.

The Kitsi kits have provided an accessible open ended platform for our students to design, develop and generate modern solutions to design problems. Our students have found the user interface simple to engage with and complex enough to add depth to their programs. The construction and form factor of the blocks themselves have been easy for our students to design around and the results are modern and sleek. Overall we’ve had great successes with the blocks and are excited to see how we can push their limits, if they have any.

As a platform that is applicable and accessible for students in Year 4-12, and beyond; Kitsi has provided the ideal suite of tools to support the development of 21st Century skills amongst students of diverse ages. This, in turn, has enabled us to build and enhance greater partnerships with our primary partners, developing both teacher and student capacity. The engagement with students and parents – both prospective and current – that Kitsi has enabled, has led to outstanding academic outcomes, community outcomes and most importantly, the intangible outcomes derived from true innovation and ideation.

The Kitsi blocks have enabled my year 9 STEM course to do things that only my year 12 Mechatronics ATAR would have the knowledge to do. The ability to rapidly program the electronics and concentrate on the problem solving has led to the pupils being far more creative with their ideas. This in turn has encouraged me to be more demanding in what I ask for, and to provide far more realistic “real world scenarios” for the pupils to work on.
