Robotics Workshop Experiment Kit
Create and assemble 12 unique robots in turn using motors, light, sound and touch sensors, a core controller with LEDs, and hundreds of snap-together pieces to pull everything together. Each build is outlined and demonstrated in the 96-page, full-color manual. Robots are each built with a different purpose and programmed to perform various functions and commands. Early, simpler examples from the manual include robots that doodle, avoid obstacles, or follow a line. More complicated robots with many functions (such as robots that grab things, or move balls around, or crawl) are introduced later. Capping off the instruction book are fully-functional robots that serve a dedicated purposeincluding a door-opening robot and a robotic safe!
These robots serve as an introduction to robotics; the skills you learn can be applied to build and program your own unique designs. The free, downloadable app for the kit can be used on both iOS or Android tablets and smartphones. This app connects wirelessly to the core controller and can be used to program and control robots in real time. Robotics Workshop can also be greatly extended using the free, open-source programming software Google Blockly on PC (and connected via USB to the robotic Core Controller).
Includes a Sound Sensor, Ultrasound Sensor, Light Sensor, Touch Sensor, Servo Motor, Regular Motor, Core Controller, and Speaker. 252 pieces. Requires a tablet or smartphone running Apple iOS or Android.
Build and program robots with this complete robotics engineering system. Using sensors, motors, a core controller, and hundreds of snap-together building pieces, you can follow the instructions to assemble 12 different robots. The versatile parts also allow you to make robots according to your own designs.
This fun robotics curriculum starts out with instructions for building simple robots, teaching you how the sensors can be used to control the robots. Build an ultrasound robot that can avoid obstacles, a line tracker robot, a touch sensor robot, and a doodling robot. Move on to more complex robots that have multiple functions, such as a ball-manipulating robot, a crawling robot, and a grabbing robot. Finally build some functional, helpful robotics including an automated door-opening robot and a protected robotic safe to store your valuables.
After you have mastered all of the robotic models in the instructions, you will have the tools and knowledge you need to go on and build and program your own amazing robotic creations.
The robots can be controlled directly in realtime and programmed to perform series of commands using an easy-to-use, free downloadable app on tablets and smartphones. The app wirelessly connects to the core controller using a Bluetooth low energy connection. You can create more complex programs using the open source visual block programming editor Google Blockly on a PC with a USB connection to the core controller. The app requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android®.
A 96-page, full-color manual features step-by-step illustrated building instructions and instructions for how to program and operate the models.
