Introduce engineering and technology concepts to younger students with the construction of eight robots. Students can manually input programs using the onboard membrane buttons, or they can use the ERP (Engino Robotics Platform) software to drag and drop commands in a flow diagram to program the robot. Parallel programming reduces the number of steps, making this kit ideal for beginners. All commands also appear in a text editor to easily make changes, serving as an introduction to traditional text-based computer programming. Kit includes 185 pieces. Three AAA batteries required (not included). Recommended for Elementary and up.
