Description

Introducing Motor:bit STEM Education Robot – The Motor:bit STEM education robot is a DIY (Do It Yourself) robot based on the highly popular BBC micro:bit. The Motor:bit STEM education robot is designed to get kids introduced to the world of coding, electronics and robotics. The Motor:bit STEM education robot is recommended for kids 12+ years and older.  The Motor:bit STEM education robot is designed from ground up to be an easy to easy to work with, easy to assemble robot and simply built with the aim of giving educators, parents and kids a great opportunity to get a taste of robotics, electronics and coding.

Experienced developers, engineers and robotics enthusiasts can build on their existing coding skills and take the knowledge of coding, robotics and electronics to a higher level. However if you are just starting with coding and robotics then you have the option to program the Motor:bit using the BBC micro:bit Makecode Block based programming language. If you are an experienced developer and have some prior experience working with electronics, coding, robotics then you can program Motor:bit using Javascript or even using MicroPython. The Motor:bit  STEM education robot is a flexible robotics platform built around the BBC micro:bit offering different learning paths catering to different STEM learning needs and challenges.

The Motor:bit is really easy to assemble and can be put together in less than an hour. We would recommend the Motor:bit STEM education robot to kids and adults who are willing to put in some effort to put together their robot and take on a small maker challenge assembling the robot from its different components. So if you are keen to introduce your child to the world of STEM and are keen to get them coding, introduced to the world of robotics using the micro:bit the Motor:bit is for you. Overall the Motor:bit 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 Motor:bit STEM education robot

  1. Kids with little or no coding experience can use the BBC MakeCode block based editor to program the Motor:bit STEM education robot.
  2. Experienced developers can program Motor:bit STEM education robot using Javascript or even MicroPython.
  3. The Motor:bit STEM education robot is an easy to assemble robot which you can put together in less than 60 minutes. Gear up for an interesting maker challenge.
  4. With the Motor:bit STEM education robot you have access to a detailed guide and tutorials that walk you through the entire build process.
  5. The Motor:bit STEM education robot does come along with a line tracking module. A line tracking module is used to detect black and white lines with high accuracy including edge detection.
  6. The Motor:bit STEM education robot does come along with an ultrasonic module. An ultrasonic module is used to detect the obstacles and program the Motor:bit to navigate around a track.
  7. The BBC micro:bit (on-board the Motor:bit STEM education robot) can be programmed and paired with a second BBC micro:bit module so that you can control the Motor:bit STEM education robot remotely.
  8. Write programs and control the Motor:bit STEM education robot remotely and make it move around an obstacle course.

The Motor:bit 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 Motor:bit 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.
