Bristlebot (4 Pack)
Consider these as "no frills" robotics kits for your youngest roboticist! Each set contains only basic components - such as motors and solar cells - to create adorable, personalizable robots with. This emphasis on simplicity reduces build times (about 10 minutes per set), allows kids to build it themselves with no or little adult aid, and narrows the focus to the basic concepts at work. However, these are to be considered "buildable robotic toys" more so than educational kits. Use them as fun supplements, or a cursory introduction for youngsters to check for deeper interest! Contains parts for 4 motor/toothbrush-powered "Bristlebots." Requires no additional tools to build.
Create your own zippy bot in minutes with this fun filled electronics kit!
Bristlebots are a fun way to learn about basic engineering, motor, circuits, and principals of balance. Creating a bot is simple, just attach the parts to the tooth brush head and watch them go. Change they way they move and behave by adjusting the balance and pipe cleaners. Bristlebots are a great rainy day activity or a fun way to spice up a classroom activity.
Each Bristlebot Kit includes all the parts you need to create your own bot. Building a bot takes 5-10 minutes of time and their included battery lasts for up to 2 hours. Bristlebots are not intended to be taken apart and reused, however some parts can be individually reused.
We recommend Bristlebots for anyone ages 10 and up due to the small parts and included coin cell batteries.
