Robots are great motivational tools for kids to learn computational thinking and programming. It provides a gateway into the world of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) for students from primary up to secondary level. With the ability to expand the features which available on Motive, even University students and hobbyists of all ages could benefit from endless possibilities to thinker and invent.
From controlling Motive remotely, programming unique tasks and complete design challenges, it makes robotics, electronics and programming learning fun and allows for a practical based STEAM education.
Motive unique two board construction allows for it to be used as the “brain” for instrumentation based prototypes and the availability of WiFi, Bluetooth and Wireless BEE Socket, which would expand the wireless connectivity then enabled IR4.0 (Industrial Revolution 4.0) based solution.
