This year instead of letting your kids spend hours in front of the television or telling you how bored they are, give them the opportunity to create, experiment and to develop their science skills by learning how to code interactive robots. One of the best ways to do this is with the Mech-5 Programmable Mechanical Coding Robot Kit or the Tobbie II BBC Micro:bit Robot Kit. Both robot kits are geared for 10 year olds and up.
The Tobbie II is an ingenious coding kit which makes it ideal to also use for an engineering science fair project. It is a DIY hexiped robot with a 360 degree free-rotation body. It comes with 115 pieces, the instructions to create a robot, and with software to program your robot. This kit can be used to explore the field of robotics or electronics. It can also be used as a form of holiday entertainment.
The Mech-5 Programmable Robot kit is a one-of-a-kind Mechanical Coding Robot because it steers its coded programmed tasks effortlessly by snapping the coding buttons onto the coding wheel, directing your robot to perform various functions and tasks. This is a very popular kit that kids really enjoy.
Working with a robotics kit is challenging. When you first get your robot you will want to read through all of the instructions. This will give you an idea about what you can do with the kit. Next build each of the robot. This will teach you how to connect the parts and how to program the robot that you build. Finally you can design, program and operate a robot of your very own. Then comes the fun a having interactive robots!
