Ready for robotics? The smart little ActivityBot 360° Robot can get you started and take you a long way. It is easy to program visually with BlocklyProp, or in C with simplified libraries. Feedback 360° High Speed Servos with built-in encoders make for fast, consistent maneuvers. A variety of sensors and components come in the kit. Its Propeller Activity Board WX features built-in support for audio and wireless upgrades.

Free web tutorials guide you step by step — just follow the checkmarks. First, build your ActivityBot. Then, learn about programming its multicore Propeller chip brain. Start building circuits on a breadboard, then make DIY sensor systems so your robot can navigate on its own. Tutorial options include BlocklyProp graphical programming or C language with simplified libraries. Choose your preference, or go from one to the other for a strong foundation and progression.

The ActivityBot 360° Robot is ready for tinkering. Add off-the-shelf components, additional sensors, and upgrade kits. The Propeller Activity Board WX sports a mini audio jack and a socket for an optional RF module (not included).

The ActivityBot 360° Robot builds transferable skills in middle school, high school or college robotics, technology, engineering, and programming courses, and is California A-G certified. Recommended for ages 14 and up.
