Tonight, we were presented with the option of setting up a robotics after school class at our local elementary school. In order to make this practical, we searched online for an inexpensive robotics kit that would be great for the participants to learn about robotics while still having fun and being able to bring it home. We were able to find a great robotics kit that includes everything needed: the chassis, Arduino, hardware, and software. This is the perfect kit, as it is simple (two motors) and small, but complex enough to teach across many classes. We are planning on spreading it across 5 classes and a final obstacle course class. Here is a link to the kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AT2KUM6/ref=twister_B01NCNRYIR?_encoding=UTF8&th=1.
