Robotics and computer programming come to life with the Recon Rover. This exciting learning tool can be programmed to move, turn, talk and even deliver a treat to your dog! Program the details into the LCD keypad screen (such as "Move forward 2 feet, turn 90 degrees to the right and play sound 1"). Then watch as the Rover carries out your instructions! The 48-page, spiral bound user's manual gives you objectives, helpful background information, mission maps and step-by step instructions in programming 50 commands. This cleverly crafted guide also concludes with room for taking notes and charting one's own adventures.
