Toy Robot Kits|
Toy robot kits provide the builder with experience using tools and following detailed instructions. The finished product is a fun toy which rolls, walks or climbs around your home. Depending on which kit you choose, these robots operate under the control of either their own built-in "brain" or a remote control.
Programmable Robot Kits|
Programmable robot kits provide experience with the core technology of robotics research. In fact, many of our robot kits are used as lab projects in high schools, colleges and universities around the world. Mastering these kits involves a significant effort learning about mechanics, electronics and software.
BEAM Robot Kits|
BEAM robot kits provide experience with solar energy and electronics. These robots demonstrate complex behavior with minimal environmental impact by using ingenious designs instead of heavyweight technology. "Pure" BEAM designs do not use external power and do not involve programming.
Soldering Robot Kits|
Soldering is an essential skill in electronics. Its also a fun, satisfying activity in its own right. In this section we offer a variety of programmable and non-programmable robots which involve a significant level of soldering during the assembly process. Don't forget to check the
BEAM Robotics and
Electronic Kits sections for more soldering projects.
| These kits are appropriate for kids as young as 7 years old and range in cost from $70.|| These kits are appropriate for older students and for interested adults and range in cost from $300.|| Because these kits require soldering, they are generally recommended for ages twelve and above and range in cost from $80.|| Because these kits require soldering, they are generally recommended for ages twelve and above and range in cost from $300.|
