Description Starter Robot Kit

Enhanced Hands-on Ability
With heavy-duty mechanical parts, easy-to-use electronic modules like Me Orion, ultrasonic sensor, IR receiver (Bluetooth module), you can get an enhanced hands-on experience on building a robot tank or a three-wheeled robot car that is programmable.

One Kit, Two Robots
Follow the detailed, beginner-friendly instructions to construct your choice of a robot tank or three-wheel robot car.

Three-wheeled Robot Car
The three-wheeled robot car is the other robot you can build with the starter kit. Two tyres and a caster wheel enable this three-wheeled robot car move smoothly.

Robot Tank

Connecting 38 tracks together, this starter robot kit can be built as a robot tank. With the ultrasonic sensors on the deeper position, the robot tank will be able to detect obstacles timely and correspondingly change its direction to avoid collisions.

Easy Wiring

Modules in this kit all equipped with RJ25 ports for easy wiring. Just by connecting the modules together, robots can be built in a really quick way. All the wiring is simple and very clear.

Easy but Powerful mBlock
Starter Robot Kits is fully compatible with mBlock which is a graphical programming environment based on Scratch 2.0 Open Source Code. It makes programming projects and interactive applications easier through simply dragging and dropping function blocks.

Support Scratch & Arduino Programming
Learning programming is way more fun when your code controls a robot. Based around an Arduino board, this kit will teach you all about programming a micro-controller board to control physical objects using sensors.
