Description

Introducing micro:bit Robit STEM Education Robot – The micro:bit Robit 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 micro:bit Robit 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 micro:bit Robit using Javascript or even using MicroPython. The Ring:bit micro:bit STEM education robot is recommended for kids 8+ years and older.

The micro:bit Robit is really easy to assemble and can be put together in less than an hour. You can use the micro:bit Robit to introduce you child to the world of STEM and get them going with coding introducing them to the world of robotics using the micro:bit. micro:bit Robit 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.

Here are some of the key features of the micro:bit Robit based STEM education robot –

  1. Kids with little or no coding experience can use the BBC MakeCode block based editor to program the micro:bit Robit STEM Education robot.
  2. Experienced developers can program micro:bit Robit using Javascript or even MicroPython.
  3. The micro:bit Robit 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 micro:bit Robit you have access to a detailed guide and tutorials that walk you through the entire build process.
  5. micro:bit Robit 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 micro:bit Robit to navigate around a track.
  7. The BBC micro:bit (on-board the micro:bit Robit) can be programmed and paired with a second BBC micro:bit module so that you can control the micro:bit Robit remotely.
  8. Write programs and control the micro:bit Robit remotely and make it move around an obstacle course.

The micro:bit Robit 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 Robit. 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.
