The Bioloid STEM Expansion pack extends the Bioloid STEM Standard to add new constructions and new activities.
Users must already have the Bioloid STEM
Standard kit. The STEM Expansion Kit can't be used without the
Bioloid STEM Standard Kit.
Bioloid STEM is geared for a secondary-school robotics curriculum. It introduces programming and other STEM concepts. The BIOLOID STEM Expansion Kit is consisted of a variety of parts to build 9 examples robots (one at a time) over a period of 23 weeks. Unlike simple repetitive programs, the STEM expansion kit explains the combination of forces, spacial coordinates, principles of bipedal motion, bio-mimetic engineering and much more, allowing you to learn by solving various problems on your own.
What's in the box?
Hardware to build 9 robots, 4 X-12A actuators for joint-based movement, Roboplus programming software and a comprehensive STEM curriculum with 2 workbooks. (requires 6 AA batteries not included)
Roboplus Motion- 3D based motion animator to program the action of the robot easily - Motion creation engine with the interpretation of inverse kinematics
Roboplus Task- Visual task programming tool for controlling robots - C-language based icon method
Roboplus Manager- Managing and checking Dynamixel - Update the firmware of controller
What really sets this STEM kit apart from other educational kits is the fantastic curriculum guide. These guides are far from a simple assembly manual - the 2 workbooks represent 21 weeks of comprehensive educational training. The STEM kit breaks each chapter into three phases: the Basic Phase, the Application Phase, and the Practical Phase. First, the Basic Phase will introduce students to different robots and robotic features with each to understand analogies, pictures, and examples. The basic phase will finish up with having students assemble the robot with a clear assmebly guide. Next the Application Phase will teach students about programming by explaining the pre-written programming examples step by step. This phase will also explain the math that goes into programming robots. Finally the Practical Phase will give students a chance to solve programming problems on their own, as well as learn about advanced robotic concepts. By the end of each chapter students will have a fully functioning robot running custom code that they have written!
