Introduce young students to the digital age by teaching them design, innovation, and programming skills as they build robots and bring them to life with code! Each robot comes as a flat cardboard pack with sensors that allow it to behave and interact with its environment in interesting ways. Choose from 2 robots, DIMM and Binary's UFO. DIMM is a humanoid machine that can be outfitted with speakers and a plethora of sensors to become anything from a motion-detecting security robot to a temperature-or light-sensing science experiment. Binary's UFO flies from planet to planet conducting investigations via onboard temperature, motion, and light sensors. Tweak code between experiments to retest hypotheses and solve problems. Both kits come with a BBC micro:bit computer, which acts as the control unit for each invention. Simply connect it to a PC or Mac using the supplied mini USB cable and write code in a web browser with the easy-to-use Block Editor—no complicated software required! It works with tablets and smartphones using Bluetooth. Each robot kit includes a flat pack cardboard robot, glossy stickers, easy-to-follow instructions, a BBC micro:bit computer, and extra sensors for hours of activities. Full contents lists below.
