Ignite student interest in STEM with robotics!

Designed to engage students with simple, yet amazingly captivating robotics projects, this classroom set lets you do hands-on explorations covering engineering, problem solving, electrical circuits, friction, mass, and recycling. Students will explore these concepts as they imagine, build, and test their own robotic creations.  No previous robotics experience needed.

Start with the Bristlebots to introduce students to circuits and engineering, then challenge students to create their own Junkbots using recycled materials!

Comprehensive teacher's guides provide materials to support all experience levels

Lesson plans aligned to NGSS and key state standards guide you step-by-step through doing the activity with students:

Plus, we've created extensive Teacher Tool's for extra support in the classroom, including: how-to videos, instructional Powerpoint slides, science background, printable quick reference guide, student worksheets, and ideas for lesson variations.

Quality supplies let students experience real science and engineering

We've worked with the manufacturers to customize the electronics components so they are easy to use, especially for younger students. Students will still be using real electronic components, but we've removed the need for soldering irons and wire cutters, making assembly safe and easy for students in a class setting.

Supplies to build 20 robots, only $6.50 per robot:

10 Junkbot or Artbot Robots (recommended group size 2-4 students per robot)
10        3V DC motors with leads
10        2xAA battery holder with leads
