The Hellobot STEM Education Robot requires use of a micro:bit. By writing code to get two micro:bit’s to talk to each other you can control the Hellobot remotely. These robots can also be controlled by a Bluetooth App and an Android app. When the mobile APP is close to the car, the Bluetooth is automatically connected, and the APP can be used to control the car to complete various fun and interesting gameplay. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is really easy to assemble and can be put together in less than 60 minutes. You can use the Hellobot STEM Education Robot to introduce your child to the world of STEM and get them going with coding introducing them to the world of robotics using the micro:bit. The Hellobot STEM Education Robot is a great way to get started with the basics of coding and robotics using a flexible, affordable and easy to work with robotic platform.
