(TechCrunch) China’s Ubtech has announced its latest projects to teach kids STEM skills with the 410-piece JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series: Overdrive Kit. There are two primary robots — a bulldozer and a dump truck — built with a pair of motors and sensors that react to their environment.
At $120, the kit is fairly reasonably priced — though its got plenty of competition. Every company from LEGO to Sphero is attempting to enter the STEM/STEAM coding market. Currently, the UBTECH name is not well-known in the USA. The product has decent retail outreach, with availability at Target and Amazon.
