It won’t download for some reason?

Level Three has a spelling mistake - it should be secret drawer not secret draw. Love the resource though, and it is editable on the download.

I used wheels like this at The National Museum of Computing (Milton Keynes), except they were used over and over for multiple groups so there were wooden wheels that lasted. Not sure where they came from. A very effective learning experience.

The unzipped files are all showing as 0 kb for me too. Shame as this would have been a nice activity to try.
