VEX Robotics by HEXBUG encourages STEM learning through hands-on play as you construct your very own jumbo-sized robot and customize its programming! The spider kit includes over 350 snap-together pieces and a centralized brain to bring it to life. Drive the robot manually with a remote control, or choose autonomous drive mode and watch the spider scurry around all by itself, mimicking real-life movement. The spider includes 6 legs, IR distance sensor, LED module and interlocking gears. It walks forward or in reverse while avoiding obstacles, and changes directions by spinning its head 360°. With 64 programming variations to choose from, simply flip a series of switches on the robot's brain to experiment with how it reacts when different sensors are activated.
