So, you think all coders sit at computers in dark rooms, always hammering on their keyboards ? Nope. Coding has taken a new turn. It’s turned physical, and you can experience it with this 5 in 1 Mechanical Coding Robot!
This robot can perform loads of operations like performing rotations up to 360°, moving forwards and pausing, moving backwards, lifting, throwing balls, kicking, gripping, and drawing! And, to programme it to do all that, you don’t need a computer or an app. All you need to do is insert the plastic pins into the robot’s coding wheel in the right order.
This robot is not only hugely entertaining, but its coding aspect makes it a great educational toy. And, the fact that you get to build this robot from kit form means even more learning, and loads more fun!
All you need to build this robot (other than the kit) is a cross-head screwdriver, diagonal cutter, marker pen, ruler, and 2 AAA batteries. You also need to be 8 or older, and ideally have an adult there to help (and to boss around, just a little bit).
