Running out of things to do with your little ones who just want to be close to you at all times? Maybe it's time to bring the fun back into fundamental education (See what we did there?). This DIY Autonomous Vehicle Kit for Ages 8-13 will not only help you and your small being bond, but it'll also help them learn how to engineer a creation of their own they can show off to all of their friends whenever people decide to stop being complete buffoons so we can gather once again.
Developed with children's coding and engineering skills in mind, and with the support of engineers engaged in R&D at Ford Otosan, this kit is perfect for tinkering kiddos who are training to be smarter than their parents ever could be. Covering topics like artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, and advanced-level robotic coding — while exploring sensor technology, automotive engineering, and computer programming through hands-on learning — the kit will have any child ready for engineering school before they even understand what crippling college debt is.
Your kids will have access to an Arduino-based Twin coding module, a DC motor, a proximity sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, jumper cables, and a USB data cable, as well as other fancy tools to help them create and navigate their way through discovering new ideas and inventions that invoke parts of the brain that a STEAM course would.
Want to use your own materials with this kit? It's compatible with LEGO bricks, so you can use what you already have at home to make magic. Once the project is done, you and your little inventor can use the Twinner app's block codes to operate autonomous cars. The best part? the whole family will be doing some good when you purchase this kit since some proceeds from your purchase go to Twin's Science Movement Campaign, which helps bring science to disadvantaged children in rural areas around the globe.
