Age 4 and up. Journey into the world of robotics with fun, educational Cubelets®. This expandable system is the best way to introduce students to robotics and programming as they design and build potentially thousands of different functional robots using the 3 types of Cubelets®:
- Sense Cubelets® are black in color and take in information such as light, distance, and temperature.
- Think Cubelets® are brightly colored and act as little brains to process or modify information.
- Act Cubelets® are transparent and do things such as spin or roll.
Cubelets® easily connect to each other, and all sets and packs include brick adapters to connect Cubelets® to your favorite brick-based construction systems. Expand any set or pack by purchasing additional pieces. All of these Cubelets® come pre-loaded with Cubelets® OS 4. Lesson plans for K-12 and a must-see "10 Quick Tips" video are freely available at www.modrobotics.com/cubelets. The lesson plans include topics such as teamwork, robotics, sensing, data collection, engineering design, and animal behavior. Check Carolina.com for interesting videos, projects, or kits that include Cubelets®.
