Parents looking to teach their youngsters the core STEAM concepts of prototyping, analytical thinking, problem-solving, and lateral thinking may be drawn to the DIY robotic kit by Junkbot. The programs were curated to help young creators build working robots from scratch using old household items such as CDs, cardboard, spoons, and plastic bottles — to name a few.
Junkbox offers unlimited projects and takes users step-by-step to design an imaginative robot that can be programmed to complete various tasks at different skill levels. Users can also customize their projects through open source components and the free lab support includes online access to a Junkbot expert as well as ebooks and online video resources.
