It’s that time of year again…the 4aKid #WINBIG Competition is here!
Introducing 4aKid #Winbig 2018 Competition Sponsor – Gammatek
A year since unleashing exciting robotic innovations from UBTECH Robotics in South Africa for the first time, Gammatek, a leading distributor of technologies, presents an extended range of Jimu robots for young engineers to bring to life. In the cast of Jimu Robots – the interactive robotic building block systems that let kids easily build, programme and share their robot creations – are Astrobot, Tankbot, Jimu Explorer and the Jimu Mini Kit.
“The response to UBTECH’s robotic innovations has been overwhelming and we are excited to introduce an extended range of Jimu robots to inspire the imaginations of aspiring young engineers. These interactive robot building kits go beyond pure play and also challenge our perception of educational toys. While stimulating creativity and imagination, UBTECH robotic building kits encourage critical thinking, problem solving, three dimensional engineering and collaboration,” says Gammatek’s Zev Cherniak.
Jimu Robot Kits utilize unique snap together, interlocking parts and connectors which allow youngsters to build their own robots. Smooth motion robotic servo motors allow the robot to reproduce movements programmed via the Jimu app, available on iOS and Android.
The Jimu Explorer Kit includes all the parts you need to build any of six unique animal-inspired robots – or your own designs. Engage in hands-on STEM learning by programming your robots to walk, dance, or more using Blockly code or with the PRP (Pose, Record, Play) function. The kit includes 372 snap-together parts, 7 smooth motion robotic servo motors, 1 main control box, 1 lithium-ion battery, power adapter, and quick start guide.
UBTECH Robotics are available through an exclusive network of retail partners including Incredible connection, Toys R Us, Takealot.com; Loot.co.za; Shopandship.co.za and Technomobi.co.za
