The Robots in School project is about providing, on a one-year loan, a set of robot arm kits in Schools (primary or secondary), for them to play, come up with ideas around them and then share the ideas - http://robotschools.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/start-of-project.html . Ten sets of robot arm kits were made available.
An interactive map below shows the schools who are part of the project.
There are already some interesting ideas being carried out here are just a few examples:

Thanks to @cbiseducation and @scottturneruon for the loan of the @Raspberry_Pi powered robot arm. The children were buzzing with pleasure 😃— Steve (@scipiguy) July 28, 2016
