LEGO, best-known for its robotics, announced WeDo 2.0, a compact robotics kit that’s specifically designed for elementary school kids. The kit boasts about 280 individual pieces that let kids assemble them in any format to create a robot. The idea behind is that kids can learn the basics of engineering, science and coding by building a robot. Each built will have its own unique features. For instance, you can build Milo, that’s pictured, which can follow along strings of simple commands that are crafted in an accompanying app. Every time it follows a task, the corresponding icon flashes on the screen so that children can see how programs are executed — removing bugs when conflicts arise.
The WeDO 2.0 kit will be available in stores starting today, and if you’re in the market, you can grab one for $160. For additional $290, you can get the extended edition meant for education users.
