If you haven’t noticed yet, we at the Maker Shed have a soft spot in our hearts for robots. We know that they provide a fun, simple starting point for young Makers: robots can be created from something as commonplace as a tin can and promote mechanical thinking.
Even for more advanced tinkerers, robots still hold sway. With the addition of microcontrollers, programming, and engineering skills, robotics kits can be as complex or simple as you desire. Building a robot from a kit is a stellar learning experience.
