We’ve already covered fischertechnik’s excellent physics & mechanichs labs that are part of their science line. But we have now recently added fischertechnik’s flagship products: Their excellent robot lab kits.
For younger robot enthusiasts we have the ROBO LT Beginner Lab, designed for ages 8+. Over 200 connecting components are included!
With this kits kids can build basic robotic models such as this lighthouse model:
Along with many other designs.
The next step up is the much more involved ROBO TX training Lab
This lab is aimed at slightly older kits (Age 10+), it has 310 pieces and includes the ROBO TX Controller, motors, and software. The only thing you needs besides this kit is the Accu Set power supply!
For more a mobile robot experience, the ROBOT TX Explorer comes to the forefront:
Again made for ages 10+, this lab centers around programming, redesigning, and repurposing the tracked Explorer robot:
This little can be modified and reprogrammed for many different purposes such as trail-finding, color detection, exploration and even rescue! The kits comes with all component parts but requires the seperately sold TX Controller, Power supply, and software.
Finally, the field of industry gets covered with the ROBO TX Automation Robots Lab
In this lab, kids build fully-functioning automation robots not very different from what you might find on the factory floor (albeit much smaller).
The Automation kit requires the ROBO TX Controller, ROBO Software, and power supply.
These kits are not cheap, and fischertechnik did not cut corners to bring them to you. They are great for kids who need a higher step above standard robot kits & toys. They are also excellent for schools – their durability and ‘construction toy’ nautre means they can be used again and again from class year to class year, making them a bargain in the long run!
