Jade_MimeticsThe Jade Robot is a fully-developed educational robot designed to engage and excite the next generation of scientists and engineers. It has just completed six months of in-classroom testing with students ranging from Grade 5 to 11, teaching them about robotics and programming while changing their attitudes towards Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (aka “STEM”). Having tested the robot and classroom materials, we are now crowdfunding to help bring the Jade Robot to more students.

ThymioII_wireless

Thymio is a playful robot designed to help children discover programming, motors, light and motion sensors, and ultimately, logical and inventive thinking – right out of the box. Earlier versions of Thymio are already in use at home or school by tens of thousands of children worldwide. Now Thymio’s development team is crowdfunding to bring you a wireless version of this loveable educational robot.

Muribot is an affordable, compact robot kit, designed to make coding and robotics easily accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. It packs in quality hardware, usually seen only at universities, and is intended to grow with the ability of the user. This makes Muribot significantly different from robotic platforms that are created for a specific skill level. By bridging the gap to a high-quality learning experience, Muribot aims to be a major competitor in the STEM market and is looking for crowdfunding to achieve that goal.

thymioII_1

This is Kidbotics, a new educational robotics review series for kids who, like me, are just coming into the robotics scene.  I am 12 years old, and these reviews are meant to give kids (and their parents and teachers) a sense of whether these will make a fun introduction to robotics for kids with minimal experience. Today we are looking into the depths of the ThymioII, a wonderful little robot by Mobsya with some really great things going for it.
