Kits to learn robotics and programming

News Robotic

Products related to learning electronics, robotics or programming have long been reserved for schools with complicated kits requiring courses, long-term learning phases and sustained follow-up to progress properly. The best known of these is LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Education, which has a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Home version but is difficult for the uninitiated to learn.

This era is over and manufacturers as well as Robot-Advance are struggling to offer today affordable, complete, easy-to-understand and easy-to-implement kits so that each child can, according to his level, learn or improve in these areas, both alone and with the support of their parents.

Robot-Advance has recently started working with European and American manufacturers of electronics and robotics kits offering kits accessible to all and that you will all find in our online store. To help you find your way around, you can discover the main ones on this page. Kits that we think are perfect for different, useful and out of the ordinary gifts.

Boson Starter Kit for Micro:bit

Boson starter kit micro:bit

You want to learn the principles of Micro:bit editing and programming but don't know where to start? Then we recommend the Boson Starter Kit for Micro:bit. It contains a micro:bit BBC card on which to connect different modules to be programmed to create different projects.

Recommended for children aged 10 years and older:

  • Cultivates children's programming skills
  • Supports the interaction of sound, light and movement
  • Delivered with 8 modules, 4 quick start project sheets
  • Contains a tutorial of 12 projects from start to finish

To help you easily understand the use of each module, the microbit boson kit comes with a quick start guide, including 4 basic projects with wiring and sample codes.

The Boson platform has more than 50 different modules, including sensors, actuators, logic gates and more. The modules in the different categories are intuitively coded in four colors. This means that you will not be able to buy new modules separately to start new projects.

Insectbot Hexa : robot based on Arduino for children

Insectbot Hexa Arduino beginners

The Hexa insect robot has six legs and a larger structure than the previous generation: 15% larger in size and 20% heavier in weight. A difference that makes the Arduino Hexa robot the most powerful generation in the history of the Insectbot. This robot to be created is equipped with three high quality 9g micro servos and four AAA batteries,

The robot Insectbot Hexa is intelligent in its movements, its ability to avoid obstacles. The codes are not more difficult to read and it is still possible to program the Insectbot Hexa with the simplified Ardublock language. A graphical programming language that will allow you to fine-tune the Hexa robot.
