If you’re interested in learning more about coding and building robots, you might be interested in the new Kickstarter campaign for the STEM Educational Robot and Robotics Course. Powered by the awardwinning Arduino platform, the Mecanum wheeled robot is factory assembled and ready to go right out of the box.
Equipped with high precision ultrasonic sensors along with backward facing TOF flight time sensors for navigation. The compact robot measures 315 x 240 x 115 mm and is capable of sidesliding diagonally and in circles. Early installments are now available for a cuttingedge project from around £720 to £582 (depending on current exchange rates).
“Scorpion is a complete STEM educational robot that comes with its own accompanying robotics course. Scorpion was designed from the ground up to be a powerful tool for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to students aged 12+.”

Each wheel has a builtin encoder so you can accurately measure how far each wheel has moved and how far the robot has moved. It also has three highprecision ultrasonic sensors. It has one in front and one on each side, so the robot can sense obstacles and navigate its environment.”
If the “Learn to Build Robots” crowdfunding campaign successfully raises the required target and production goes smoothly, worldwide shipments are expected to take place sometime in May 2023. promotional video below.
“The grip also rotates nearly 180 degrees, which is great when you want the robot to perform actions like opening valves or changing the orientation of the objects it’s holding. The Time of Flight (TOF) sensor can also be used for navigation when the robot is moving backwards. The Scorpion is also very easy to connect and program. Plug the included USB C cable into the front panel port, then plug the cable into your Windows computer, Mac, or even Chromebook and you’ll be programming your robot with the Arduino IDE in no time.
