There's robotics kits designed for classroom use and then there are the ROBOTIS robotics kits, which are designed for serious learning. What makes them different? Well, they're not just for breaking the ice and introducing robotics to students while they're young. Many of the ROBOTIS kits are designed specifically for high school students to take authentic STEM learning to the next level. With a hard-to-beat approach to teaching, including curriculum guides, hardware, and software, each ROBOTIS kit focuses on a future-relevant STEM concept and helps students master them through hands-on application!

We know that there might be a lot of teachers who feel their students are experienced with SPRK+ and want the next best thing. Well, the Ollie robot can flip, spin, and perform combinations of tricks to keep all students engaged! Programmable and drivable just like the SPRK+, Ollie will up students’ robotics skills to the next level. Ollie is a tough robot that can withstand super speed (up to 14 MPH!), rough crashes, and various terrains with its nubby tires and prime hubs. No tires? Students can use their innovation skills to help Ollie drift like a pro on smooth surfaces. No jump ramps? They can build their own obstacles to launch Ollie off!
