DESCRIPTION

This introductory BlueBot 4-in-1 Robotics Kit provides hands-on STEM projects and lets you build up to four different robots, one at a time, with radically different behaviors. 

Use the materials inside this educational robot kit to make a DIY:

  • Guard Bot—a robot that springs into action when an intruder arrives.
  • Light-tracking Robot—a robot that follows a flashlight the way a cat might stalk a moving light.
  • Line-following Robot—a robot that can follow a black line path.
  • Obstacle-avoiding Robot—a robot that can find its way through a crowded room.

No previous experience with robotics or electronics is needed to dive into this BlueBot 4-in-1 Robotics Kit! Step-by-step online instructions guide you through the building of the robot as well as the designing of the circuit that controls the sensor. This robotics kit makes a great gift and is ideally suited for 11-year-olds and up (grades 6+).

Curious learners will have a lot of fun as they engage with each robotics project or STEM activity inside this kit; they will explore the fundamentals of robotics engineering: building circuits, powering motors, and learning how robots capture and respond to information about their surroundings.

This kit is perfect for a budding robotics enthusiast and can grow as your knowledge builds. Add it to your robotics collectibles! If you want to build more advanced robots, you can always add a microcontroller, like an Arduino (not included in the kit), to the basic robot and begin programming more complex behaviors.

Instructions for this kit are available online; see below for links to the instructions and more.

You will also need from home: 
Depending on the robot being built, you may need a flashlight, scissors, double-sided foam tape, and other craft and household items. Please consult the instructions for each robot for a complete list of additional materials needed.
