Are Robotics kits for kids worth it?
But it does depend on what you buy and what you hope to achieve.
Here are my top 3 recommended robotics kits, below I go into more detail about why I recommend them which age group they are best for and what each kit can and can’t do.
2. Lego Mindstorms
3. VEX IQ
These amazing kits have been around for years. When I first started teaching robotics in schools I started with the classic yellow RCX Brick:
Please do comment if you ever used that or are still using it now, I would love to hear about your projects!
After the RCX lego robotics got a massive makeover and the Mindstorms NXT was an absolutely amazing robotics kit.
This was followed by the equally brilliant Lego Mindstorms EV3 – you can see some great projects here.
