CRAFT + CODE
Take the next step in your craft and code journey and unlock the world of robotics.
Make a spinning Truth or Dare game to play with your friends. Build and code a self-driving, obstacle-avoiding robot called Eli. Use the kit to invent mesmerising, moving creations of your own.
The Robotics kit is designed as an extension to the Craft + Code Starter Kit. They’ll learn what makes a robot a robot and connect new electronic components to their creations to add movement and surprise.
As they work through the projects, they’ll recap on the programming concepts covered in the Starter kit and learn how to program motion.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I buy just the Robotics kit?
To build the projects in the Robotics kit you will need components supplied in the Starter Kit.
Do I need any tools or materials to complete the projects?
You will need the Starter Kit plus the contents of the Robotics kit to make the projects included in this kit.
No additional materials will be needed.
How long does it take to complete the projects in the Starter kit?
That’s a great question and it really depends on the child (and adult!). Typically (for a child age 7 and with no snack breaks), the time taken to complete the projects in the Robotics kit ranges from 30 to 60 minutes.
What age is the kit designed for?
All Craft and Code kits are designed to spark the curiosity and creativity of young minds aged 7 and over. We appreciate every child is wonderfully unique, therefore, request adult supervision to ensure each kit remains maximally enjoyable.
