The UKIT Beginner Class Pack serves 12 teams of two students, offering each group of students their own UKIT Beginner to work with. Using the sets along with the instructions from the free app, students work collaboratively to engineer and program autonomous robots.
UKIT Beginner seamlessly incorporates STEM instruction into elementary classrooms. The kit contains everything teachers need to introduce and reinforce STEM and computer science concepts including:
- Comprehensive building kit – no additional pieces required.
- Access to UBTECH Education’s proprietary app, which lets students build, code, and animate their robotics projects.
With UKIT Beginner, students can experience both robot construction and coding. Following a guided build utilizing 3-D animated models, students progress through the engineering design process, incorporating rapid prototyping and iterative design. Simultaneously, they advance through a coding experience that starts with physical manipulation of the constructed models, which results in visual code creation. Then, students move to block-based programming with the ability to view real-time syntax.
The free UBTECH Education app provides 360-degree, 3-dimensional, step-by-step instructions for 13 models that are easy to follow, so students can quickly get started and immerse themselves in the build.
