Coding & Robotics School Kit (Quirkbot)

Learn creative coding and building with the classroom set of Quirkbots! Make a walker, a blinking star, or a pig shake in fear when it senses darkness. Connect to the computer, code, and upload a program that can tell your invention to move, blink, or both. The Quirkbot has a rechargeable battery and can be removed from the computer to let your project come alive in the real world.

You can learn how to program in three different ways: flow, block, and C++ text designed for all levels of experience.

The Strawbees CODE app works offline on Windows & MacOS and directly from the browser on Chromebooks.

An individual, smaller version of this Strawbees kit is available.
