The green Parallax Scribbler robot arrives pre-assembled, with a rechargeable battery. Scribbler draws, follows lines, avoids obstacles, and students control it with Blockly coding. An Exploring Robotics Individual License Scribbler Curriculum for Middle School for 1 user for 1 year. Provides access to student self-study online lessons to learn STEAM topics with fun activities while controlling this robot.
STEAM lessons teach coding in a graphic puzzle-like environment for learning programming concepts while reinforcing math and science concepts such as energy, light, sound, number systems, algebraic equations, and measurements.
|Operating System:||PC with Windows (XP/Vista/7) and Internet access to download the software.|
|Programming Language:||The Scribbler 2 graphic programming is a puzzle-like environment similar to Scratch. The robot can also be programmed with Python or Spin (a C language). The benefits and flexibility of Spin in multi-core systems provides easy compartmentalization of S2 subroutines that run concurrently with shared memory. Controlling motors, managing sensors, and interfacing with the hacker port can be done concurrently even while playing sound; the Propeller Chip inside the robot makes it all possible.|
|size and weight:||7.4 x 6.25 x 3.2 in (188 x 158.8 x 81 mm)|
|Battery type:||6 AA alkaline or NiMH batteries, not included.|
