Product description

Product Description

Ever wanted to design your own HEXBUG? Now kids can do just that with VEX robotics. The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world. The build-it-yourself line of VEX robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX robotics, kids as young as eight can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components. To create the VEX robotics strandbeast, young innovators start by constructing each half of the base and attaching a motor to both sides. Once the base system and the eight legs are in place, it's time to bring the strandbeast to life by wiring the brain to the LED module, distance sensors, and motors using snap connectors, and then attaching the brain to the body. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright blue leg pieces that illustrate this complex robot's graceful, smooth-walking stride. To program the robotic strandbeast, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose. . There are three drive modes: standard driver mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, autonomous mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and crazy autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature. The HEXBUG VEX robotics strandbeast teaches kids that motors receive signals from the brain, spinning into action, kicking the legs into gear. LED module changes colour as the strandbeast walks distance sensors reflect infrared light to alert the beast before it crashes into its surroundings. The brain is the centralized computer that powers the strandbeast, relaying signals from the remote control, and activating the motors and sensors to bring the creature to life.
