Buildable robots and kits

Buildable robots allow students to design and build their own robot, incorporating computational and creative thinking. Buildable robots are often used when students enter competitions that require the design of a robotic solution to meet a challenge.

These types of robots frequently provide an opportunity for students to explore systems, and draw on systems thinking, as they design a robotic solution that incorporates outputs, sensors, on-board microcontroller, actuators, gears and other moving parts.
