The HUB-Lab offers a wide range of innovative resources and technologies to use in educational practice.
NAO is an interactive humanoid robot able to perform programmed tasks. Using the platform “robots in the classroom” you can make presentations or lessons yourself.
With these robots you learn the basics of programming through various apps.
An Ozobot is a small robot which you can program using colours, drawn lines and/or a simple programming language.
A Bee-Bot is a programmable robot in the shape of a bee. It is used specifically in primary education.
Marty is a programmable robot whose eyes, arms and legs you can move. It is a starter model, easily controlled with Scratch.
A Micro:bit is a small programmable card with built-in LED lights, compass, movement and temperature sensors, usb, radio and blue tooth.
The Makey Makey is a circuit board with which you can create your own keyboard. You connect the Makey Makey to your laptop and you attach cables to (guided) materials such as fruit, candy, water or clay and your ready to go.
Lego Mindstorms is an expansion set of the well-known LEGO.
With this set you use a control module to have your self-built creation move and perform tasks, after you have provided engines and sensors. With the different sensors that respond to light, touch and sound etc., the possibilities are endless.
Via a laptop or tablet, you can use the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 program with a Blockly-like environment to build your codes.
Prowise is a touchscreen with which you can create interactive lessons or presentations for educational purposes. You can create quizzes and mind maps with the tools offered. If you use the screen horizontally, you can also play all kinds of educational games.
Virtual reality (VR)
Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer technology where it seems like you are in a different reality, in 3D. In the HUB-Lab we have various VR glasses such as the Oculus Go.
The HTC Vive is an interactive VR set which consists of a headset and controllers. As opposed to VR glasses, the HTC Vive makes for a more immersive experience, making you feel like you are in another world.
You can use a 360 degree camera to make video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time. The file is automatically stored on the app on your phone. Open the app and place your phone in a pair of VR glasses for a 3D view.
TeachVR is a Virtual Reality platform that allows you to create your own lessons and presentations in VR. You can upload your own 360◦ photos or choose photos from the Google Streetview 360 database.
Augmented reality (AR)
Discover the inside of the human body with this Augmented reality t-shirt. Scan the t-shirt with the app and learn where your organs are and how they work.
The 3D pen works by extruding heated plastic called Filament that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure, allowing for the free-hand creation of three-dimensional objects.
