Designed for school-aged kids in the 3rd to 8th grades, RobotiKits are a collection of 3 mini DIY robots. They are easily assembled and can be used to demonstrate the principles of solar energy to children. Because they use solar energy, the RobotiKits require no batteries. Each kit can be purchased individually.

Included in the collection are:

1. Super Solar Racing Car - based on 11 parts, the car rushes off when exposed to light. 

2. Frightened Grasshopper - when light falls on it, the eyes jiggle, legs wiggle, and antennas sway to and fro. The grasshopper has 7 parts. 

3. Happy Hopping Frog - the frog will start jumping as soon as light falls on it. The kit has a total of 26 parts and is more challenging to assemble.
