Including over 350 snap-together pieces, this build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM* learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG, and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump in and build these colorful robots using easy, tool-less components.
To construct the VEX Robotics Spider, young innovators start by building the drive column, and then working to attach the six orange legs. Once the base and the legs are in place, it’s time to bring the spider to life by attaching the motors, distance sensor, LED module and brain using snap connectors. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright orange body pieces that give the robot its futuristic flair, resulting in a fully-functional HEXBUG Spider! Kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how the spider reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options to choose from.
Additionally, the robot comes with three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode, where you drive the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode, where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous Mode, which simulates the real, random wandering nature of this living creature! Requires (1) 9V and (3) AA batteries (not included). Ages 8+.
*STEM: An acronym that refers to the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
- Design your own HEXBUG
- Used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world
- Includes 350 snap-together pieces
- Motors receive signals from the brain, spinning into action, causing the head to rotate and the legs to cycle
- The distance sensor reflects infrared light, which alerts the spider before it crashes into its surroundings
- The LED module will change color with every turn of the spider’s head
- The brain is the centralized computer that powers the spider, relaying signals from the remote control, and activating the motors and sensors to bring the spider to life
