The Education Basic Set has been specially designed for use in schools, workshops, labs and other educational institutions. It gives children and young people the opportunity to familiarise themselves with programming, robotics and sensor technology. With the four modules included, sensor vehicles can be built, which can also be programmed using the Tinkerbots Blockly App.

Learning with Tinkerbots
Tinkerbots Education Sets are special sets designed for educational institutions. In addition to the construction kits, we offer teaching materials that provide teachers with a basis for imparting knowledge about Tinkerbots. The materials are based on curricula and enable the transfer of knowledge in various areas such as mechanics, sensor technology, computational thinking and programming
Multisensor 5 in 1
The 5 in 1 Multisensor can detect distance, colour, gestures and light. The integrated sensor technology even enables a line follower function. The robot models can even react to their environment, which makes many tasks by educators possible
Blockly Programming - Download
Tinkerbots Blockly is a visual programming editor specifically designed for programming Tinkerbots robots. With the intuitive drag-and-drop function, basic programming concepts such as loops, variables, conditions, etc. can be taught. With the help of the various programming blocks, children from the age of 10+ can make their first experiences with programming. With the possibility to display the code also in the programming language Python, Tinkerbots Blockly is also suitable for the use in high school classes.
The software runs on Windows and MacOS computers The mobile version for Android and iOS devices will be available in December.
Control of the Robot
All Tinkerbots robots can be taught with the recording mode and can therefore also be controlled manually. To do this, press the record button on the Powerbrain and then move the robot as you wish. During playback, the robot then repeats this sequence of movements With the Tinkerbots World App, the robots can also be controlled via smartphone or tablet. With the creative mode, each module can be assigned a controller, so that each creation can be remote controlled
Attention: Not suitable for children under 3 years. Danger of suffocation!
Not compatible with old Arduino sets
