Product Description:

This unique, and (I think) adorable little robot is a great introduction to robotics and mechanical engineering. Robot movements are centered around a coding wheel that you snap different instructional buttons onto. The robot can move right, left, forward, backwards, spin or pause and complete tasks such as throwing, drawing, lifting, or kicking. As you become more familiar with the robot, you are able to complete more challenging functions. It’s so rewarding to figure out the mechanics, and work through the different obstacles and challenges you encounter. See your efforts in motion as the robot completes the tasks you’ve assigned. ~ Megan

Publisher Description:

The mechanical coding wheel is the heart of the Mech-5 Mechanical Coding Robot. It steers its coded courses and programmed tasks. Coding is executed effortlessly by snapping the coding buttons onto the coding wheel, directing your robot to perform its basic functions move forward, backward, right or left, spin or pause. Thanks to this simple to follow approach, coding and performing more challenging tasks like throwing, lifting, kicking or drawing, become achievable as the user's coding skills increase.

This mission-based, entry level STEM coding robot is designed to inspire users to learn about mechanical engineering principles and coding basics. It encourages children to think while also developing their problem-solving and troubleshooting skills when faced with different tasks and difficulties. Engage in the coding world and beyond by challenging yourself with your very first coding robot.

My son (5th grader) and I both thought this looked like fun. He is interested in programming and I thought this would be a very tactile way to understand how coding works.

My 10 year old son thought it looked interesting and I thought it looked possible to figure out. He found it while browsing through the Rainbow Resource Christmas catalog. It reminds me of my own childhood, browsing through the toy section in the Sears Catalog around Christmas time. Keep the Christmas catalog coming!

Fun Build
My 11 year old was a little intimidated at first but once he started putting the bot together he said this was his favorite Christmas present.
Great learning activity, great activity for 2 generations to work together.
