Tinker Pi Robot for Microbit - Modular STEM Learning Platform

Product Description

The Tinker Pi Robot for Microbit is the perfect introduction to Microcomputers, appropriate for young learners just starting out in programming and electronics. The programs are written using MakeCode, a drag-and-drop block programming language.  One of the Microbits controls the motor on the robot, and the other is used to control the robot remotely using radio waves.

The assembly takes about an hour, using our written and video instructions.  Programming consists of downloading and dragging the programs to the Microbits to get the Robot running.  For the classroom setting, we have 14 colors, so that teachers can assign each robot to a student or small group.  We provide both video and written tutorials starting out at a very basic level and working up to the programs that run the Robot (see below). 

Once the kids have completed the tutorials, the Microbits can be used for other purposes, and other microcontrollers can be swapped out and snapped into the Robot Chassis.  This allows you to maximize your investment, and the students to move on to more advanced projects, such as the Circuit Playground, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi.
