Teach Programming, Engineering, Math, and Science with Scribbler Robot
The pre-assembled Scribbler S3 robot is suitable for introducing programming with the Graphical User Interface (S3 GUI) tile-based programming tools which look like puzzle pieces. For advanced students, it can also be programmed with Python, PropBASIC and C language.
Fun - Follow lines, Draw shapes, Navigate a room or a maze, Roam toward light, Flash lights, Play music, Dance, Immitate an ambulance, Send Morse Code, and much more!
Beginner-friendly - No programming or robotics experience needed
Understandable - Included text provides easy-to-follow tutorials. Curriculum includes videos and step by step instructions.
Programmable - Graphic Programming Language looks like puzzle pieces, is easy to learn, and introduces concepts found in most programming languages.
Connectable - USB cable to connect to PC for programming, then disconnect for autonomous roaming and other activities.
Autonomous - Touch, light and infrared sensors let the robot navigate on its own.
Durable - Thick, brushed-aluminum chassis, rugged plastic case, and servo motors will last for many years. Rugged wheels and continuous rotation servo motors for accurate control.
Communicable - LED lights, speaker, phototransistors, and infrared emitter/receiver pairs provide fun methods of sending and receiving feedback.
Battery Powered - LiPo Battery (recharges with USB power)
Sensible - 3 light sensors, 2 obstacle avoidance sensors, 2 line following sensors
