FREE Larva with 2 HexBug purchases
Ages 8 and up

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To construct the VEX Robotics Spider, young innovators start by building the drive column, and then work to attach the six orange legs. Once the base and the legs are in place, it’s time to bring the spider to life by attaching the motors, distance sensor, LED module and brain using snap connectors. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright orange body pieces that give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Spider!

To program the robotic spider, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how the spider reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 350 snap together pieces.

Built product measures approximately 11.5” long x 11.5” wide x 11” tall.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).
