Reviews

  1. Cara, Parent

    My 9 year old son fell in love with all the aspects of this little robotic guy – the simple but still challenging method to construct, the opportunity to solder, the electronic aspects, the ability to easily programme and then see it all work! OpenSTEM provided this kit at our school, where a range of ages (8 to 12) had the opportunity to work hands on with all the elements of putting this Mirobot together. Even soldering – which was a big hit. Highly recommend the product but also the support that is required if you run into any difficulties. Thank you!

    The kit was easy while still fun to build (except maybe for fitting the wires in). This was a fun way to start learning about programming. We are starting to think about new ways to use it! Thank you!

    I was very impressed with the layout and design of the Mirobot. I purchased the kit which required soldering.
    The laser cut parts fitted together easily. We we able to control the Mirobot from a site 1,500 km away on our Wide Area Network. The online MirobotApps increase the programming options. The next thing is to mount a camera and start exploring. 😉
