SheekGeek has a lot of great educational robotics kits for all ages…

Picture here, The W.A.S.P –

The W.A.S.P Original Robotic Kit is designed to help introduce children age 12 and up to robotics, electronics, and mechanics.

The name W.A.S.P stands for “Wiggling and Spinning Photovore” which describes the action and the type of the robot in the W.A.S.P. robot kit. A photovore is a light-seeking robot. The W.A.S.P photovore robot wiggles towards a light source and spins in circles when it finds the brightest spot.

The activity of the W.A.S.P is very reactive. It will follow the beam of a flashlight closely allowing the user to control where they want the W.A.S.P to go. The W.A.S.P is also very quick (especially with new batteries). It can travel 5 feet in 5 seconds!

Setup of the W.A.S.P is great for beginners. The circuit is very simple and many of the pieces are everyday, recognizable items like chenille stems/pipe cleaners and cable ties.

    Back in 1997 when I was a boy scout, we constructed kits called “Cybugs” which were identical to this, in a bigger form, and all self-solder. I’ll try to find photos and post another comment.
