I am a teacher using the Starter/Basic kit in my Comp Sci class. We have 20 kits and my 3rd hour class opened them and used them for the first time between February and March. My 4th Hour class is now using them March-May and we are experiencing a lot of problems.
Components are breaking and many of the projects are not working. I have sat down with the kids and rewired the entire project, but it will not work. After switching out a switch, sensor, etc the project will work. I planned on having to replace components every year, but was very surprised that we have to replace items after using the kit once.
has anyone else experienced this and what are you doing to deal with it?
