The Robotics Smart Machines Kit enables kids as young as 8 to build and operate eight exciting robots plus any more they can imagine! The eight motorized machines are controlled by student-run programs and an ultrasonic sensor, which executes the visual programming cues designed by kids on their smart device, enabled by a wireless Bluetooth connection. The robots are capable of executing various actions based on distances the ultrasonic sensor detects or kids can use the remote-control to compel the robots to do exactly what they want. Working on the same principle as sonar, the ultrasonic sensor sends out sound waves, which bounce off objects and allow the robots kids construct to detect obstacles in their path. The pieces are durable and reusable, allowing engineering-minded kids to re-build robots repeatedly and the app engages students by teaching them how to get their robots to behave based on the cues they supply!
