Really fun robot kit
« on: September 03, 2017, 11:37:58 PM »
Got my little one (close to 8 years old) an mBot robot kit. I held onto it for a couple of months so I could bring it on vacation in case there were some rainy days. I wasn't expecting much, but I have to say this thing is pretty wonderful so far! We built it together, but it was really simple, and she's through most of the guided programming learning already... It's an Arduino with a Bluetooth so she can program it on my phone or computer... and there are a bunch of add-ons you can buy. All in all, an incredible investment of my $100. Watching her delight in putting a little program together and watching it run is priceless! I have some parts laying around from other projects, so we are probably going to be adding on and seeing what we can come up with. I wish we had things like this when I was a kid! So fun!
