About the product:

Our lesson kits are the ideal starter kit for anyone who wants to pick up some tools and build with robotics.  The red toolboxes come packed with everything needed to build multiple projects (listed below) and can be used to make your own stuff move!

NOTE – *USB Power Bank not included* – The kit is powered via USB which works great with our Wood USB Power Bank or any USB power supply/power bank (electronics, computers etc with USB port should not be used)

The included Arduino compatible controller is a board with our Animate Shield included.  The board is even preloaded with code so no computer is required to get stuff going!  The control board provides 3 control knobs, 2 buttons, easy connections and aRGB pixel.   This combination functions as a controller allowing you to record your servo moves and play it back on a loop to animate your builds.

To build on this functionality you can connect the included sound sensor to have your build move and react to sound and music.
