Junior Control Insight 2.5

The control & modelling tool for the ICT and D&T curriculum

Junior Control insight offers a unique solution to teaching control & modelling. Pupils can view their control system in three different ways, supporting the design-test-build method of control. The Scene Window shows an animated picture of the model; the System Window shows the active components and how they relate; and the Connections Window shows how to connect the interface.

You need little equipment, because a large number of animated screen-based simulations are used, including: Dream Bedroom, Fun Fair, Haunted House, Inventor's Workshop and many more.
