Battlebots - any project ideas or learning resources in kid friendly language?

Recommended Posts

Somebody tell me what I can do with my kiddo who's obsessed with Battlebots! He's been building his own our of legos, k'nex, and our spielgaben pieces. He just turned 7 and is getting a snap circuits for his bday. Has anybody gone "further" with a battlebots lover?

My 9 year old is also obsessed with this show. I'm pretty sure he's made Lego recreations of every bot in the competition. :)


This year I'm doing a computer science and electronics course for him. We're going to start off with a Kano Kit (which is supposedly good for ages 5+), so he can build a computer and learn to program it, and then we're going to do EEME kits so he can learn electronics and building circuits. If all goes well, I can totally see us having Raspberry Pi powered robots running around the house in a year or two.  :laugh:


This recent thread about robotics at home suggests Lego Mindstorms, which I imagine we'll be getting in the not too distant future, too.
