  2. Liaise with Valiant designers to explore the possibilities

  3. Receive editorial and graphical support to help you produce high quality materials

As part of the partnership agreement you will work with Valiant to:

  1. Develop vision, goals and objectives on the use of educational robotics

  2. Develop an action plan

  3. Work with the monitoring and evaluation team

Your work on has to be different to the work of other partners or existing activities. Other than this stipulation you are free to work on any activity or research project you wish.

What Happens to the Activities?

The activities will be posted to the Valiant web site and made available to teachers and educators as an open source open content resource2. You will be publicly credited for you contribution.

Are the Activities Free to Teachers and Schools?

Yes. Valiant do not charge schools for the activities. However, they do reserve the right to charge for Roamer Behaviours they have to create to support the activities.
