The number you see in Quantity is for 1 complete Mega-Bot kit. After your purchase, you will receive everything you need to build your Mega-Bot in one complete package. Next, you will receive an email to set up your new login to access our step-by-step instructions and curriculum on our learning platform to start building, wiring and coding your Mega-Bot.
Learning Management System
All of the curriculum for the Creator Bots is housed on our very own LMS and can be found at www.kidslovecode.com. The content in the LMS is interactive! This means that the user can click, drag, slide, and watch to interact with all the lessons and challenges in the curriculum!
Learn coding and engineering in a complete project-based, hands-on package.
Enjoy the simplicity of learning from watching videos! Dive further into the engineering concepts by watching our hand-crafted videos that explain each lesson step-by-step.
3D Printable .STL Files
Using any 3D printer, simply click and print accessories for the Creator Bot! This includes a bumper, spoiler, top shell, and fins!
3D Printing Guide
Learn how to 3D print the STL files on any 3D printer and software. The whole idea around 3D printing is all about customization. Learn how to customize your Creator Bot’s accessories to look and feel how you want. This includes color, shape, words, and more!
Creator Board Microcontroller: Premium open-source Arduino-based platform featuring 56 digital input/output pins, and 24 analog inputs.
Motor Driver: Dual motor controller module allows you to control the speed and direction of two DC motors. Space-themed challenges test your knowledge!
Ultrasonic Sensors: Three ultrasonic sensors provide front and peripheral vision for truly optimal performance. Ultrasonic sensors measure distance by using ultrasonic waves. The sensor emits an ultrasonic wave and receives the wave reflected back from an object. Ultrasonic sensors are used to help the Creator Bot avoid obstacles.
Line Sensors: Two-line sensors provide optimal performance when following a path. The sensors detect reflected light coming from its own infrared LED.
Breadboard: Fundamental component in learning to build circuits. The breadboard is an optimal way to learn circuits and basic engineering! LEDs, Buttons, Switches, Potentiometers, and more can be plugged into the breadboard to create complete circuits!
Wireless Remote Control: Code your video-game remote-controlled buttons and joysticks for full multi-direction control and to power lights, sounds, and more!
Touch Sensor: Tactile sensors and are sensitive to touch, force or pressure. Code your touch sensor to control your lights, sounds, and more.
LCD Screen: The backlight display can show two rows with up to 16 characters and many shapes on each row – code it to display any message you want!
Voice Recorder and Speaker: Record anything with the simple press of a button! record sounds, music, and your own voice!
Fan Motors: Fan motors can be activated when doing a variety of tasks.
7 Segment Display: Display different digits to make fun gadgets like a timer, clock, or rolling dice!
Relay: Relays are used to control devices that require more than 5 volts to operate. The RGB LED Panel requires 12 volts to operate. Using a relay, you can control the state of your rainbow matrix!
Creator Mega-Bot Frame: The frame is constructed out of 2-Dimensional laser-cut ABS plastic. This means your robot is durable and lightweight. It can be assembled and disassembled with ease by snapping the frame pieces together. No nuts and bolts required! The frame includes the pieces below.
Learning Management System (LMS): The Creator Mega-Bot comes with up to 160 hours of content housed on an LMS. The curriculum for this robot can be found at www.kidslovecode.com.
Programming: Program the Creator Mega-Bot with a text-based program called Arduino IDE. The Arduino IDE language is incredibly similar to C++ and uses Arduino to program the robot.
Self-Paced or Teacher-Led: The curriculum can be completely self-paced or taught by a teacher, whether by a Creator Bot partner school, camp, or after-school program or through one of our own Virtual Classes that can be signed up for in our Shop.
