Product description

Product Description

Ever wanted to design your own HEXBUG? Now kids can do just that with VEX robotics. The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world. The build-it-yourself line of VEX robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX robotics, kids as young as eight can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX robotics scarab, young HEXBUG engineers start by constructing the base chassis and assembling the six green legs. Once the chassis is in place, the brain and motors are connected to the bottom of the base, and the legs are attached. Next steps include building the outer body shell and then wiring the brain to the sensors and motors using snap connectors.

To create the VEX robotics scarab, young HEXBUG engineers start by constructing the base chassis and assembling the six green legs. To program the robotic scarab, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose. There are three drive modes: standard driver mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, autonomous mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and crazy autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature. The HEXBUG VEX robotics scarab teaches kids that motors receive signals from the brain, spinning into action kicking the legs into gear. Distance sensors reflect infrared light to alert the scarab before it crashes into its surroundings. Interlocking gears animate the scarab by transferring energy from the motor through the endoskeleton and out to the legs to generate movement. The brain is the centralized computer that powers the scarab, relaying signals from the remote control and activating the motors and sensors to bring the creature to life.
