Thames & Kosmos Robotics Smart Machines

Gives students a simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics that lets them build eight motorized machines controlled by programs and an ultrasound sensor. The models all make use of continuous tracks, also known as tank treads, to move themselves and other objects around. Students code the programs using an easy, visual programming app on a tablet or smartphone, which connects to the robot models via a wireless Bluetooth connection. The ultrasonic sensor works on the same principle as sonar. It sends out sound waves, which bounce off objects. The sensor interprets the echoes returning to it, and from this detects objects in the path of the sensor. Using the app interface, robots can be built to behave based on the feedback coming from the ultrasound sensor. After learning how the technology works, students can build and program their own robots using the kit’s 197 building pieces. A full-color, 60-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps students assemble all of the models and teaches them about robotics in the real world. Digital assembly instructions are also available in a separate app for Android or iOS. In the programming app, the visual programming language allows you to command the robots’ motors to move at different times, different power levels, in different directions, and in response to the data from the sensor. Requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android. Please check the app stores for compatibility and device requirements. Recommended for ages 8-14.
