hello, thank you all in advance.
would like to get one of the ez robot/kits for a 13/14 years old girl, but not sure if girls like to make robots. a little encouraged by seeing prof e but what % of human gettng any ez robot is female?
don't know what the girl likes, but friends suggested store card for some clothing shops, i think it lame, there must be better gift on the planet. google found ez robot, would like to hear what actual robot people think.
there is such lacking of intelligent toys for young human out there!
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
i could only assume the young lady knows as little about robot as i, which is nothing.
the B v4/2 is not good for beginning 13/14 y o human with possibly no robot experience?
Gift card is good after knowing she enjoys making robot but getting a plastic card as a Christmas gift is not the same as something in a box.
u all think a 13/14 y o with no experience would be able to start alone, without a grown up standing by to help looking up everything?
already had to google "servo calibration" you mentioned.
would AdventureBot be easier to start than the B v4/2 kit?
where did you find out there are many girls who like and make robots?
thank you again.
If I were buying for my nieces when they were 13 (and they both would have loved it), I would get Battle Flipper, an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor https://www.ez-robot.com/Shop/AccessoriesDetails.aspx?prevCat=104&productNumber=1352
Maybe a couple of lever servos, rotation servos, a claw, and some extension cubes so she can mix and match parts and get creative.
Note: EZ-Robot ships from China via DHL. The shipping is fairly expensive, so better to make 1 larger order than several small orders to save on shipping costs.
you have been very kind, i will study these info you gave.
if you can 3d print,there is an female ez robot,see link
female ez robot
The disheartening figure is only 12-14% of engineers in the US are female. As a father of a 10 year old girl who exhibits a great deal of engineering aptitude ( assembles things effortlessly ) and drawing skills all we can do is encourage them with STEM and hope they continue interest. The end result job security? There are more engineering jobs than people to fill them.
heard female superheros toys don't sell, so less movies made on female superheros. thus am unsure if girls like to build robots.
Think about getting her a WiFi USB dongle for her computer so she can run her internet and control her robot at the same time. Those are cheap and you get them anywhere like Amazon.
its very easy to do.
meccanoid review says very hard to put together, which is why i thought ez robot would be better, being easy.
ez robot videos r great if the child is interested and would spend time watching them. would like a toy that she would enjoy as well as good for her brain.
really appreciate how nice and helpful you all r.
