Robotics is a vast and thrilling interdisciplinary field involving physics engineering and computer science. This kit gives kids a simple fun and customizable introduction to robotics that lets them build seven motorized machines controlled by programs and a sound sensor. Each robot model moves in a unique and interesting way demonstrating how the same mechanical parts can come together to yield many different results.


Construct the Super Sphere robot which has two motors and a sound sensor mounted inside a hollow spherical shell made of 32 interlocking pieces. Learn about the inner mechanics and the fascinating physics principles that enable the Super Sphere to drive forward backward and turn left and right. Then build a robot with two jumbo-sized wheels made from the same pieces as the Super Sphere&rsquo,s outer shell. Assemble the Bigfoot Bot and experiment with a robot that crawls around on two humongous feet. Adventure into the animal kingdom by building robots that resemble and mimic the movements of a penguin and a horseshoe crab. Program a funny dancing robot that can shake wiggle and twirl on command. Make your own robotic game in which you try to toss shapes into a hole in a sphere as it moves around.

Each robot comes with a preset program which you can run immediately after building it. After learning how the technology works you can build and program your own robots using the kit&rsquo,s 182 building pieces.
