    I am looking for a coding robot for my 11-year-old son. What type of coding robot is best suited for him?

    6 months ago

    If you’re looking for a coding toy for kids 11 and up, CUE is the perfect choice. Unlike some of the other coding bots on this list, like Dash, whose younger brother is also a coding robot, Cue is smart enough for older kids and encourages computational thinking and problem-solving.

    What is the price of a robotics kit?

    Reply to  Sarah Jones

     We found that most robotics kits are pretty cheap. The cheapest ones usually only have one purpose, which makes them less appealing over time. If you’re an advanced programmer, you should go for the top-of-the-line kits, which can cost anywhere from $1,000 to over $1,000. We figured that the best features for a beginner’s robotics kit would be around $85 to $300.

    Robotics kits are a great way for kids to explore STEM ideas in an exciting and fun way. Kids can build and program robots to help them learn about science, tech, engineering and math. Robotics kits can teach kids important skills like how to think creatively, solve problems, and work together.

    Here are some specific examples of how robotics kits can be used to teach STEM concepts:
    Creating and programming robots can teach kids a lot about the world around them. It’s a great way to get them interested in physics and mechanics, as well as electronics. For example, if you build a robot that runs around a track, they’ll learn about how laws of motion work.
    Another great way to teach kids about robots is by building and programming them. This is an excellent way to teach them about sensors and actuators, as well as how microcontrollers work. For example, you can teach them how to use an actuator to move a robot’s arms, or how to use sensors to spot obstacles.
    Building and programming a robot is an excellent way for children to learn math concepts such as geometry and trigonometry as well as calculus. For example, a child can learn to control the movement of a robot’s arm or how geometry can be used to determine the path of a bullet.
