One of the questions that came up, was how to use the arm without proprietary software. To answer that I have had a go using Python to control the arm see the following for more details http://robotsandphysicalcomputing.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/usb-robot-arm-control-with-python-and.html.
I am grateful to Santander UK for the funding; CBiS Education for their support and advice so far; last but not least the schools who have enthusiastically expressed an interest in taking part. All views are the authors.
