Build and program an amazing robotic buddy! Discover the world of robotics — an exciting, interdisciplinary field combining physics, engineering, and computer science. This kit gives kids a simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics. Choose between the four-wheeled rover or the two-wheeled robot Sidekick, and get programming! Transform your Sidekick into its other mode any time you want. As soon as your Sidekick is assembled, you can begin programming its movements directly on a built-in keypad. You can also download the free Sidekick app (Android or iOS) to unlock all of the Sidekick’s capabilities. You control your Sidekick’s movements, sounds, and even facial expressions.

Have fun and drive your Sidekick by remote control or by using your device as a gyroscope. Code programs for your Sidekick using an easy, visual interface or the simulator, which are both included in the app. Your Sidekick is tons of fun! It can even play music and dance. Choose from several styles of music and watch your Sidekick bust a move. Sidekick’s microcontroller — the robot’s “brain” — has separate inputs for LED lights, a speaker, two motors (left and right), a battery, and an infrared sensor that helps the Sidekick know where it is in the included maze game. As you assemble this robot, you will learn how the Sidekick’s functions relate to each of these elements.  Learn about the history of robotics and real-word roving explorers and humanoid robots.

A full-color, 36-page step-by step illustrated manual helps kids assemble both of the models and use all of the functions of the app — all while teaching them about robotics in the real world. The app requires a tablet (recommended) or smartphone running iOS or Android. Please check the app stores for compatibility and device requirements.
