Description

Introducing Hellobot STEM Education Robot – The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is a based on the BBC micro:bit development platform. This bot comes in three different avatars i.e. basic model, clip extension, and lift extension. This version of the Hellobot STEM Education Robot comes with bot the clip and the lift extensions. The Hellobot programmable robot is designed for teenagers over 10 years old. It is easy to put together and only requires a screwdriver. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot adopts the design of the reverse connection socket, combined with a custom cable and the network cable port to ensure that the build process is simple, child friendly and safe.

The Hellobot STEM Education Robot offers educators, parents and kids a great opportunity to build on their existing coding skills and take the knowledge of coding, robotics and electronics to a higher level. If you are just starting with coding and robotics then you might want to program the robot using the BBC micro:bit Makecode Block based programming language. If you are an experienced developer and have some prior experience working with electronics, robotics then you can program the robot sing Javascript or even using MicroPython. The Hellobot STEM education robot is recommended for kids 10+ years and older. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot kit comes with instructions to build the robot. To make things easy and avoid confusion the sockets are designed with anti reverse capability reducing the chances of things going wrong while building the robot. This also ensures a simple, easy and safe construction.

The Hellobot STEM Education Robot requires use of a micro:bit. By writing code to get two micro:bit’s to talk to each other you can control the Hellobot remotely. These robots can also be controlled by a Bluetooth App and an Android app. When the mobile APP is close to the car, the Bluetooth is automatically connected, and the APP can be used to control the car to complete various fun and interesting gameplay.  The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is really easy to assemble and can be put together in less than 60 minutes. You can use the Hellobot STEM Education Robot to introduce your child to the world of STEM and get them going with coding introducing them to the world of robotics using the micro:bit. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is a great way to get started with the basics of coding and robotics using a flexible, affordable and easy to work with robotic platform.

Please note : This does not ship with a BBC micro:bit board. You have to purchase the BBC micro:bit board separately.

What are some of the key features of the Hellobot STEM Education Robot

  1. Kids with little or no coding experience can use the BBC MakeCode block based editor to program the Hellobot STEM Education Robot.
  2. Experienced developers can program robot using Javascript or even MicroPython.
  3. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is an easy to assemble robot which you can put together in less than 45 minutes. Gear up for an interesting maker challenge.
  4. With the Hellobot STEM Education Robot you have access to a detailed guide and tutorials that walk you through the entire build process.
  5. Hellobot STEM Education Robot comes along with a tracking module which is built to detect black and white lines with high accuracy including edge detection.
  6. Use the ultrasonic module to detect the obstacles and program the Hellobot STEM Education Robot to navigate around a track.
  7. The BBC micro:bit (on-board the Hellobot STEM Education Robot) can be programmed and paired with a second BBC micro:bit module so that you can control the robot remotely.
  8. Write programs and control the Hellobot STEM Education Robot remotely and make it move around an obstacle course.
  9. The robot can be controlled by another micro:bit, a Bluetooth APP and by Android cell phones.

To program the Hellobot STEM Education robot you will need to include additional (freely available) Hellobot code libraries (Details of which are provided in the documentation, link below). These libraries are included using the additional extensions option when using the Makecode programming interface. Once the additional libraries are included you are able to make use of all the relevant Hellobot coding functions by dragging the building blocks directly into the coding area within the Makecode programming interface.

The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is the perfect introduction to getting started with robotics using the BBC micro:bit and the Makecode Block based programming environment. For those who want to challenge themselves, the Javascript development environment or MicroPython is definitely the way to go. Beginners could definitely make use of the BBC MakeCode block based programming interface and ease the transition into robotics and coding using the micro:bit Smart Car STEM Education Robot. One of the big advantages of the BBC micro:bit development platform is the ability to scale up from block based programming, to text based programming languages and then having the ability to move onto electronics including robotics. What you can achieve with the BBC micro:bit is only limited by your imagination.
