From toddlers to teens...latest robotics from Hexbug

Boot Camp feature for Friday, September 23, 2016

From toddlers to teens…the latest in robotics from Hexbug.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.   The little robotic Hexbug toys have been around for years.   Now there are even  versions safe for toddlers…the Cuddlebot and the Nano Junior.   And for older kids…the fun and learning continue with new Vex Robotics kits already used in many classrooms.   Hexbug Director of Corporate Communications Lindsey Gideon…

You build with the parts, snap together, no tools required.  And then the coolest thing is that they all have motion involved.  So our three new sets this year are the Zip Flyer, Ambush Striker and Snap Shot.  So once you build them, then you get to set them into motion.  And really your own creativity is the limit.”

You can follow the guidelines for building….and then break it all down and design your own robotic creation.   You can learn more at VexRobotics.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
