Which subjects is it relevant for?

The subjects it works most effectively with are those that fall under the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) umbrella, but it can also be used to teach art and cookery.

How much maintenance does it require?

Aside from cleaning the forming tray from time to time, the machine is remarkably resilient and requires little upkeep. All of the parts can be easily replaced as part of our warranty agreement.
