Enhance the way your kids play and learn while prepping them for the future to come.
Robo Wunderkind is a tool that changes the way kids play, learn, and create with tech in school and at home. Our product consists of modular robotics kits, programming apps, and a curriculum for educators. With Robo Wunderkind, children can build their own robots, customize them with LEGO® bricks, and program them to do an array of actions while learning the basic principles of coding, robotics, and STEM. Robo Wunderkind empowers kids to learn to code through the joy of play.
Robo Wunderkind is best suited for kids aged 5 and up. There are no age limits for building and programming your inventions with Robo Wunderkind. Our apps offer 3 complexity levels and are accompanied by Python and Arduino APIs for the advanced programmers, so everyone will find a coding activity to their liking.
The blocks are durable and shock resistant: we drop-tested them with many children and they proved to sustain any regular damage that can occur while playtime.
Our kits are supplied with all necessary electronic components that give children their first experience with robotics. From motors and lights to essential sensors, children have a variety of modules to explore and build with. By creating their own projects and engaging in open-end play, children gradually understand the principles of robotics, engineering, and design.
Our three intuitive apps offer many possibilities for children to program their creations:
The Explorer Lite, Prime, and Pro kits all share the common core functionality and are only different in the number of additional building blocks. The Explorer Lite kit has 6x modules (all core blocks are included), the Explorer Prime kit has 8x modules (additional sensors are included in this kit), and the Explorer Pro kit contains 15x modules (this is the most advanced kit with several sensors included). Please see the dedicated pages of every kit to find out what’s in the box.
Definitely not! No previous programming, technical, or even reading skills are required to start creating with Robo Wunderkind. Our apps are visual and intuitive enough for all kids aged 5+ to understand on their own. Sit back, relax, and enjoy watching your little ones having fun! Or join them and create together.
Playing with Robo Wunderkind is so much more than just coding. Children will learn problem-solving, math, computational and logical thinking skills, they will develop their creative thinking and team working abilities, and even communication competencies. Read how exactly coding fosters an array of non-technical skills in our blog post.
To start with Robo Wunderkind, please refer to the Getting Started Guide and the Modules Guide provided with your kit. For more resources, please visit our Help page where you can find other valuable tips that will help you to start. If you have any questions or need any help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, we do! You will find a Getting Started Guide (a short book with all essentials), a Modules Guide (a short book explaining every module in detail), as well as the Safety & Handling information in a printed form inside of your Robo Wunderkind box.
Robo Wunderkind uses rechargeable batteries inside of the Main Block (the orange piece). For charging it, you will only need a standard micro USB charger that we provide together with the kit.
The full charging time is 3 hours. The battery life is up to 5 hours.
All components of Robo Wunderkind have passed the required toy safety certifications, so our product and the materials it’s made of are perfectly safe for children. Nevertheless, we do not recommend it for children under 36 months due to small parts that are included in the kit.
We will make single blocks available for purchase on our website very soon - stay tuned! ;)
You don’t need an internet connection to play with your robots. However, internet connection is required to install the app and firmware updates that are released once in a while.
Once you connect your Robo Wunderkind to one of the apps, the system will automatically prompt you to install a firmware update if a new version is available. Please follow the instructions in the app - the update process usually takes just a few minutes.
Please visit our Education page where all our resources for teachers are available.
We have a special version of Robo Wunderkind made entirely for use in the classroom. Our numerous partners all over the world are supplying Robo Wunderkind to kindergartens, schools, and other educational institutions. Please visit our Education page to see our products for education and the list of resellers you can order our robotics kits from.
Robo Live is our app that allows children to control their robots through a digital remote and learn the functions of building blocks.
Robo Code is our app with a graphical state machine interface, which means that children are coding using interactive colorful icons on the screen. This app teaches children the basic elements of coding such as If-then statements, Loops, Decision trees, and more.
Robo Blockly is our most advanced programming app, based on Scratch interface. The block-based programming environment allows learning complex concepts like Variables, Functions, Operators, and Input-output mapping.
Please see our Apps page for more information about our applications.
Robo Live and Robo Code are language-independent apps: they contain the bare minimum amount of text that is in English, and the rest of the interface is visual and based on colorful icons. The Robo Blockly app is currently in English and it includes the English terms that are universal in the world of programming, thus preparing children for the next steps on their coding journey.
Robo Wunderkind apps are compatible with smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Your device needs to use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and have the following tech specs:
iOS: version 10.0 or higher.
Android: version 4.4 or higher.
Windows: Windows 10 version or higher.
Fire OS: version 5 or higher.
For the very first steps with our apps, we recommend checking out our online Getting Started guide that will show you all essentials. Once you read through it, we recommend to start with the sample projects listed in our apps. When you complete all of them, you are ready to program on your own.
We are working on this feature and we plan to release it in the future - stay tuned for our updates!
