Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

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 create the VEX Robotics Ant, young Hexbug engineers start by assembling the six red wheels and attaching the motors and the wheels to the ant’s core. Once the base is in place, the brain and sensors are connected and the bright red body pieces are attached to give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Ant! Final steps include wiring the brain to the dual bump sensors and the two motors using snap connectors.

To program the robotic ant, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming variations 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 250

Assembled Hexbug VEX Ant measures approximately 18" long x 6.75" wide x 4" tall.

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