Junkbot is a DIY robotic kit that truly transforms trash into treasure! No matter your age, Junkbot allows users to have fun building working robots from almost anything.
The kit transforms household objects such as plastic bottles, old CDs, wooden utensils or cardboard bits into unique, imaginative robots that can be programmed for a variety of functions – and at different levels of skill. Depending on how experienced users are and their technical know-how, their robotic friends can range from very simple to outright complex. As they delight in making new shapes come alive, kids will learn the core STEAM concepts of analytical thinking, problem solving, prototyping, lateral thinking and building.
Junkbot features color coded elements that allow users to easily grasp all of its components and functions. Each kit comes with a Core unit that controls the several modules like motors and sensors. Magnetic cables and a variety of adapters (such as magnetic, Velcro, micro-suction and Lego adapter) help assemble the kit. Module sizes, form and feel are designed for children to build and experiment to their heart’s content.
