We used the Challenge Kit at our local Kenyan Girls Who Code event and it was a huge hit! The girls were able to use the free mobile app to learn how to build and code their robot quickly. This is a highly interactive kit and I recommend it for any teacher or mentor who wants to start a local robotics club in their area.

A Great Robotics Toy
We ordered our kit through the Kickstarter campaign that was held by the company a few months ago and the kit recently arrived. We are very happy with the kit and I thought I would take a few minutes to post a positive review. Originally, we thought we were going to save the kit for a present for the holidays but decided to let some young relatives play with the kit while they were visiting recently. We downloaded the app to our iPad and decided to see if they were able to follow the directions to build one of the robots in the app. They had a great time and the adults did not have to intervene. After the first robot was built, they were driving it through the house. They have been adding their own creations to the base robot that they built and seem to be really enjoying all of the pieces and things that they can build. So far, they have built two of the recommended robots. I think the kit was well worth the money.
The new "killer" robot kit, a must have!
This is absolutely a winning robotics kit. When compared to LEGO Mindstorm or VEX IQ, this kit is more complete at a much lower price. The use of an OpenSource hardware and software platform, coupled with a truly innovative programming environment all using an iPad or Android Tablet, make this a perfect kit to engage students of all ages into STEM. The basic kit comes with enough parts to build a variety of cool robots, or build your own design trying different fun things, can you say soccer bot? I recommend this new kit absolutely over any of the other choices, in all my 10+ years teaching robotics, this maybe the first kit which comes close to being perfect for engaging students.
