If you are searching for an easy to use robotics kit to teach kids to code in a fun and interactive way, the Geeek Club: DIY Robotics Kit might be worth more investigation. The kits consist of seven small robots, supplied as pop out PCB boards with all the components required to transform the kit into an interactive robot using a little soldering and basic “electric engineering skills”. The kits are available via Kickstarter from $49 or roughly £38 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place during April 2020. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the robotic kit, hardware and the final results.
“Welcome to Geeek Club, the easy and FUN way to gain engineering skills. It’s no secret, engineering is one of the single most valuable skillsets you can have in this day and age. For anyone who wants to work on their inventor muscles, there’s no better way to start! If you’ve always looked up to geniuses like Tesla and Edison, then you can get a small taste of their genius and develop your technical abilities without boring yourself to tears with courses and textbooks.”
“Imagine a world where light is the only available power source, and robots scour the land in search of the precious energy to keep them going. Those robots would function in a very similar way to these nano-smart bots! With light sensors and vibro-motors, these robots will intelligently move toward any light source, giving you endless amusement and an amazing conversation starter. Their size makes them the perfect décor for your office desk and kids love playing with these bite-sized robots.”
