Light-Chasing Robot


What you get

Light up a love of electronics with this light-chasing robot! Wire up the motors, add the switch, and assemble your robot — all while exploring the science behind circuits and sensors. Customize your robot with one of two skins (a turtle or a beetle), then use the included flashlight to make it get a move on. Learn to steer your robot left, right, and head-on... then rewire and reconfigure it so that it runs backwards!




From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

Many insects are attracted to light, and this bot is too! Instead of using a standard remote control function, we added a special sensor to create a light-chasing feature for this unique little bot.
