You can control the specific movements of your robot with three motors, or use the IR sensor it can detect objects or follow a line. The motors can run independently of each other so you can have separate pincer or lifting motions. The kit includes five LED blocks and a touch sensor to give you even more options. Choose from eight different designs with instructions then use the 281 pieces to create your own designs. Fun for anyone ages eight to 16.

What is STEM and how does this help my child?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These subjects focus on an applied approach to learning, allowing more practical-based education instead of theory. This encourages children to learn how to construct items utilising the basics of the above subjects. By engaging your child, you can encourage learning and development and potentially take the first steps down a rich and varied career path.
