• Fun and simple to solder with 22 parts
• Requires two AAA batteries (not included, Order Code L42AL)

What can I do with this kit?
Build a fun bug kit and watch as it randomly moves in different directions. The movement is controlled by the PIC12F629 chip and it can move forwards and backwards as well as turning left and right. Have fun building and playing with this fun kit that’s easy to solder for any ability level.

What can I learn from this kit?
Practice soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this sound to light kit solder kit which uses resistors, capacitors, transistors, LEDs and potentiometers (variable resistors). Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience soldering them. Two open chassis subminiature motors control the movement and speed the bug travels at, and the microchip controls the direction. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and you may require wire cutters and a file.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this kit is great for those looking to progress beyond beginner projects. Have fun putting together your kit before expanding on your project. You could create a body for your bug and customise it with antenna, wings and extra legs (not included) to make a unique robotic pet. This kit comes with a holder for two AAA batteries (not included).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Virtually no instructions Very limited instructions given, its really just a list of components. It assumes quite a lot of knowledge ( that i didn't have) and does not explain how each piece works together. Our model did not work bit we enjoyed the soldering ! We will try again with another kit.
