Build, Program (Code) & Control with this engaging Robotics set aimed at students aged 10-18 years.
(KX79484 is the UK/EU version of 79100)
Download the Software and Instructions from HERE
With the supplied programmng software, students can design and build fully-functioning models using coding to bring them to life. Test and debug in real time before downloading the completed programs into the models.
(Each Robot model supports 2-3 students working as a team)
A complete STEM solution
Includes everything required to teach STEM through robotics design & programming:
The Robotics set includes a full site licence of the PC Robotics Programming Software.
Use the low-threshold, high ceiling, industry standard flowchart based programming language to program, test and debug and of the 9 supplied model designs, or create and code your own robots!
Finished code is compiled and downloaded into the interface, for completely independent, free standing robots!
Connection between the PC and the model is via USB or go wire-free with the optional Wi-Fi add-on module.
In addition to the built-in USB connection, optionally add a Wi-Fi module, for remote control!
Connect to an existing school network, or the K’NEX Controller can create its own. Program, control and receive feedback (for debugging) without wires.
With both direction and speed control, the built-in encoder returns distance and rotation information
Use motor positional feedback and the colour sensor to carefully program the line chaser model to follow different colour lines
Detect objects from 12cm to 3m
Detect the altitude of the Airplane model to trigger raising and lowering of the undercarriage
Light & Colour Sensor
Use the dual Light Sensor to detect and compare reflected light levels.
Use the Light Sensor to determine which way to turn the line chaser model to stay on-the-line
Additionally, the Light Sensor may be used to detect the colour of objects.
Program the Ball Factory to pass Green and Yellow balls, but recect Red ones!
Push Button Sensor
A digital on/off sensor
Program the arm on the Ball Factory to stop and open the jaws at exactly the correct stop position.
Three L.E.D colour output.
On the Ball Factory, use Red to warn of 'danger machine operating' and Green when it is safe to approach.
Graphical L.C.D Display
Select and run / stop programs and change settings. Program to display custom graphics as part of the control program.
Use custom graphics to show the Robot's heart beat!
Sound Sensor (built-in)
Measure sound levels.
Make the model react to noise.
Play back sound samples.
Use real Airplane sounds!

K'NEX Robotics helps bring our curriculum alive
K'NEX Robotics helps bring our curriculum alive helping children with problem solving, reasoning and logical skills and give them options to develop as people.
John O'Shea Head of Computing St Mary's Catholic School
Perfect for STEM learning in schools, clubs and at home.
This kit has huge potential for learning and fun: clear, easy-to-follow instructions for building, for downloading the software and for using the software. The flowchart programming language is intuitive and easy to get started with. Another fantastic exciting and educational STEM kit from K'NEX. Highly recommended!

K'NEX Robotics Dog Model - Our Experience
We're really enjoying the K'Nex Robotics Kit as a great option for learning about robotics at home. Definitely worth considering for kids who are interested in robotics and want to develop their knowledge.

K'Nex Robotics Review - Build and Program Big Robots!
K'NEX is great for building fairly big robots in an reasonable amount of time. We love the way the models enable multiple people to get involved in the building. This works really well for siblings or a family activity as well as at clubs or in the classroom. The models are fantastic with plenty of variety. They definitely appealed to my kids.
