Primary Crumble Controller Starter Kit

Ages 7-11 years

The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable controller, designed to encourage tinkering, using ‘croc leads’ for quick and simple connections. It has four Input/Output pads which allow connections to switches, LDRs, low power LEDs and so on. It can also drive two motors forwards and backwards at variable speeds.

Also available is the Crumble-friendly Components Pack which has eight of the most commonly used electronic components, mounted on ‘Crumbs’ – PCBs with croc-clip friendly connections.

Crumble software runs on PC, Mac and Linux (including the Raspberry Pi). Inspired by MIT Scratch, programs are simply built by snapping blocks together on screen. Sending a program to the Crumble is almost instant, allowing rapid experimentation. The Crumble can digitally control full-colour LED, called Sparkles (two are included).

Software is free and can be downloaded from Redfern Electronics.

The Primary Crumble controller starter pack is great way to get you started. It contains:

  • New switched battery box and a Crumble-friendly switch.
  • 1 x Crumble controller
  • 12 x Croc leads
  • 2 x Sparkles (controllable RGB LEDs)
  • 1 x Crumble-friendly switch 1 x Micro USB cable
  • 1 x Crumble-friendly switched battery box

Note: This kit can also be purchased as a bundle with additional support materials:

  • Two Projects on a Page Primary Crumble Planners: Years 3/4 Simple Programming and Control and Years 5/6 Monitoring and Control. These are updated versions of the original planners that came with Projects on a Page.
  • Programming and Control at KS2’ article from D&T Primary #32 looking at input, output and process, hardware and software and one school’s experience of designing and making a colour-changing nightlight.
    The projects included on the planners will require components from the components pack.

“They loved the Crumble from the outset – even programming it simply to turn an LED on and off was a source of great excitement! They quickly learned how to attach and program the sparkle, motor, buzzer and filament bulb, with little input from me”.
