Grades 3 and up. A simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics that lets students build 8 motorized machines controlled by programs and an ultrasound senor.

  • Code programs using an easy, visual programming app on a tablet or smartphone
  • Robot models connect to tablet or smartphones via wireless Bluetooth® connection
  • Ultrasonic sensor works on the same principle as sonar
  • Sensor sends out sound waves that bounce off objects
  • Sensor interprets echoes returning to it and uses them to detect objects in the path of the sensor
  • Use the app interface to program the robots to behave based on feedback coming from ultrasound sensor
  • Build a bipedal robot that walks forward on 2 legs and pivots to avoid obstacles
  • Beetle robot moves backwards or forwards in response to an obstacle, and opens and closes its pincers
  • Construct a funny crocodile model that wags its tail if no object is in sight, but opens its giant jaws when an object approaches
  • Use an additional smartphone and tablet to hack together a cute little spy bot that roams around and streams video back to the tablet screen
  • Tilt-rotor aircraft model simulates vertical take-off and landing by rotating its propeller blades 90°
  • Other robots that can be assembled include a robo dog and a robotosaurus
  • Once students are familiar with the technology, they can build and program their own robots using the kit’s 230 building pieces
  • Full-color, 64-page, step-by-step illustrated manual helps students assemble all of the models and teaches them about robotics in the real world
  • Visual programming language allows students to command the robots’ motors to move at different times, different power levels, in different directions, and in response to the data from the sensor
  • Simple sounds can also be added to programs
  • Requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android™
  • iOS devices must support Bluetooth® 4.0 and must be running iOS 8.0 or later (such as iPad® 3 or later, iPad mini®, iPhone® 4S or later, and iPod touch® 5 or later
  • Android™ devices must support Bluetooth® 4.0 and must be running Android™ 4.4 or later
