What Is Learnt?
Students learn text-based coding. There is pre-written base code to make the process easier. The base code can be downloaded 'here'
To understand the basics of electronics, students get the wire their own robot. They get to learn about negative and positive terminals, switches, and circuit basics.
A small amount of soldering introduces the students to higher electronics. Tinning, wire stripping, and soldering are all apart of this.
There are many times when your code doesn't go to plan. Students have to find a way to change their code to complete the tasks
The hands on construction of the chassis is great for learning. Students glue the chassis together with PVA glue.
Still in the box
Haven’t had time to build yet
Not doing it until term 3👍
As always we have been very happy with the quality of the Arbot kits; they contain everything we need for our Technology classes in years 8-10.
An excellent unit of work. All parts are included and there is ample opportunity to extend the more able students. Great value for money.
We are launching a robotics/coding unit at my schools and we could not be more impressed with the Arbot.
Be able to supply every students with a take-home robot for under $25 is amazing. I think it would be fair to say this robot is a game changer for our students. Congratulation to the Arbot team.
How to Pay Through Invoice (for schools)
To pay through invoice is similar to paying by card. The only difference is the payment method you select at checkout. Instead of choosing paypal or credit card, select "pay by invoice".
An invoice will automatically be sent to the email put in the contact forms. If you are already a verified school, we will ship the products right away. Otherwise we will have to confirm with your school of the order first.
The 7 ChallengesDownload Base Code Here
Get the car to drive 2 meters in a straight line. Students change the driving length to get a basic understanding of coding
The arbot compliments the already existing Stage 4/5 curriculum. To be specific, the Arbot adds value to the ‘crack the code‘ unit. The Arbot uses all key principles that are taught in crack the code.
Learning to code Arduinos follows through to University. The Arduino IDE coding platform is based on c++. The coding language c++ goes up all the way to year 4 University. The best way to prepare your students for the future of jobs is to teach them these skills as soon as possible.
There are an array of challenges STEM teachers face in making their classes engaging, affordable, and time efficient. When it comes to expensive equipment, the Arbot kit requires only the standard TAS tools, such as soldering irons. Taking between 2 and 3 weeks, the construction of the project is both quick and enjoyable for students. After the build is complete, students work by themselves on the pre-written base code. From the classes we have already run, each and every student was able to complete their project within the term.
