The results show that it makes it easier for teachers to work with processed materials in the subjects of science and technologhy. The teachers felt that it gave them a personal growth in the subject and that it saved time in day-to-day operations. According to the teachers the children have been positive of the NTA-box and contributed to greater language development, conceptual understanding, and motor skills.
