Get lost in the wonderful world of NumBots with our series of exciting, motivating, and uplifting audio stories.

Each story incorporates a different growth mindset which children can apply to maths, as well as all areas of learning and life. NumBots Scrapheap Stories are available to everyone, even if you don’t subscribe to the NumBots maths platform. Children can listen in the classroom or at home with their families.
