This introductory robotics kit lets you build up to four different robots, one at a time, with radically different behaviors.

  • Guard Bot—a robot that springs into action when an intruder arrives.
  • Light-tracking Robot—a robot that follows a flashlight the way a cat might stalk a moving light.
  • Line-following Robot—a robot that can follow a black line path.
  • Obstacle-avoiding Robot—a robot that can find its way through a crowded room.

No previous experience with robotics or electronics is needed to dive into this kit. Step-by-step online instructions guide you through the building of the robot and designing the circuit that controls the sensor. You will explore the fundamentals of robotics engineering: building circuits, powering motors, and learning how robots capture and respond to information about their surroundings.

This kit is perfect for a budding robotics enthusiast and can grow as your knowledge builds. If you want to build more advanced robots, you can always add a microcontroller, like an Arduino (not included in the kit), to the basic robot and begin programming more complex behaviors.

Each kit contains: 

 1 Robot chassis (includes wheels, two motors, and a 4xAA battery holder)
 1 3xAA battery holder with leads
 4 AA batteries
 1 Breadboard
 1 Jumper wire kit, 70 pieces of assorted colors and lengths
 1 Male-female jumper wires, 30 pack, assorted colors
 1 On/off switch
 2 Diodes
 2 10 kΩ potentiometers
 2 Photoresistors
 2 Infrared reflective object sensors
 1 Passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor
 2 Lever switch with leads
 1 L293D H-bridge motor driver
 10    150 Ω 1/4 watt resistor
 10 220 Ω 1/4 watt resistor
 10 4.7 kΩ 1/4 watt resistor
 10 10 kΩ 1/4 watt resistor


 Instructions for this kit are available online, see Additional Information for links to the instructions and more.

You will also need from home: 
Depending on the robot being built, a small Phillips head screwdriver, flash light, scissors, double-sided foam tape, and other craft and household items may be needed. Please consult the instructions for each robot for a complete list of additional materials.
