  • VEX IQ Super Kit
    A big improvement but *almost* everything
    Review by Raymond
    I've used the "classic" Vex Robotics Design System, Mindstorms RIS, NXT and EV3 and some others like Multiplo. The Vex IQ is a big step forward from the classic VEX and has some nice and unique pieces and mechanically it's hard to beat. The only shortcoming is a narrow range of sensors, some of the other lines have a wider assortment and they're really not expensive enough to warrant omitting them.

  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Excellent
    Review by Wade
    This is very easy and simple to put together and can do a lot depending on the sensors and components you add to it. A great robot to play around with!

  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Very cool
    Review by Dwayne
    Very nice to put together. The arduino is very easy to program. I can't wait to put a shield and some sensors on it. I think I stretched one of the treads putting it together so I am ordering a few more sets.

  • LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 (US Version)
    Great educational/fun kit for kids and their parents.
    Review by Olek
    Great kit that allows me to play with my son and to teach him basics of programming/robotics all while connecting with him and sharing his excitement. It is only going to get better over time as open source support for it grows and becomes more mature. Overall kit has a good quality feel to it, and software with instructions is really nice, especially software for tablets that allows to see building steps one by one in 3D, with animation, from any angle, with any zoom factor. If anything, it would be nice to have version of main software package for Linux.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on 23 April, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under GoRobotics >> Education, Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

If this is for the national type of high school robot comptition, you might want to post up some links to show what what is involved (some local schools enter this each year). The 2 oz 15" object sounds like the balls they have to pick up. How high is the tube off the floor?
