Learn to code the easy way
Learn to code using the world’s most widely used programming language, with the Binary Bots Dimm Robot. Unleash your creativity and program your Dimm robot to perform a wide variety of tasks, use the built in sensors and an array of light and sound and learn along the way.

STEM learning can be just as easy, as it is fun
The Binary Bots Dimm robot uses a simple BBC:Micro bit computer, which you program from your Mac or Windows computer using a simple drag and drop web based block editor. This means you can visually see the lines of code you are creating, making it easy to string commands together as you advance. Once your instructions have been programmed, you can load your commands into the Micro:bit and let Dimm act out your commands. Create a motion detecting security guard to scare off intruders with an array of flashing lights and sound or use the directional compass built into the BBC Micro:bit to let Dimm tell you what direction he is facing. Learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics doesn’t have to be dull, especially when you’re learning with Dimm!

Create your robot from the ground up
Each box comes with everything you need to create your very own Dimm robot, and construct him piece by piece. His frame can be simply put together using a few folds and locking tabs, so no tools or sharp objects or glue is needed to construct Dimm. Install a number of colour coded wires and sensors into the pre-positioned locations and connect everything up to the Micro:Bit to activate Dimm. You can even decorate him using the supplied stickers or you can add a personal touch to your robot and make him just the way you want.

Once built and connected, jump straight on to your computer and use the free online learning activities, videos and block editor to begin programming your robot. When you are confident enough you can then use your newly learnt programming skills to create numerous tasks for Dimm, your imagination is your only limit.
