$33.99
SKU 3456

Enter the world of robotics with our Simple Robotics kit and build your own easy build micro:bit controlled robot. It has been designed, from the ground up, to be simple to build by even the youngest of fingers. From its one-piece cardboard chassis to its clip lead connections, everything goes together in a way that is as free from frustration as possible.

This robot buggy is the same that is featured in the Lesson in a Box Simple Robotics kit, which is a complete set of electronics and teaching resources to enable successful cross-curricular lessons with minimal teacher effort. This single version allows you to make one at home with the children and enjoy all of the fun learning potentials that this kit offers. Designed and tested with direct Teacher assistance, and in the classroom, this kit lends itself perfectly to the young roboteer.

The kit is accompanied by a detailed set of instructions that will not only walk you through the assembly, but it also covers the coding in detail. Even if you aren't confident or technical in nature, you will have no difficulties assembling and using this wonderful kit.

Nearly everything you will need is supplied with the kit. All you'll need is; a micro:bit, a screwdriver, and a pair of scissors. The scissors and the screwdriver are barely used, so if the children are quite young these parts can be done in a flash by an adult.

The included cardboard body can be cut, decorated, and modified to suit your own projects, or you could even design your very own chassis, the possibilities are endless.

Coding: The supplied instructions have extremely detailed coding explanations, so much so that a beginner will have no difficulties following along. There are also some more involved examples that are similarly walked through. The examples use the Microsoft MakeCode Editor, which is also designed for beginners.
